ELA 12 goes on Chaucerian Pilgrimages

Ms. Dalesio’s ELA 12 classes have been studying Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”. The students were assigned a group project to write a poem about their own pilgrim, and then to take the class on a pilgrimage that their pilgrim might have gone on. The students had creative and fun ideas such as impersonations of teachers, bakers, and hippies. This was a fun way for the students to get creative and channel the writing styles of Geoffrey Chaucer.                          By: Paige Hilderbrand

Beowulf ……. By Paige Hilderbrand

The ELA 12 students in Ms. Dalesio’s class just finished reading the epic poem, Beowulf. They were each required to create a project that represented something from the story or the time period in which it took place. The students put so much effort into recreations of swords, monsters, mead halls, and more. The students really showed off their skills with these projects.
