Grades 11-12. Essentially a complete teacher's manual for the tales, this LitPlan Teacher Pack includes lesson plans and reproducible resource materials for The Canterbury Tales. It includes: 27 Daily Lessons Short answer study questions Multiple choice quiz questions Vocabulary worksheets for each reading assignment 3 detailed writing assignments Individual and group activities Critical thinking discussion questions 5 unit tests (2 short answer, 2 multiple choice, 1 advanced) Evaluation forms Review puzzles & games Bulletin board ideas Reproducible student materials And more! A Note About The Text: We used the Coghill modern translation of Chaucer's tales which stays very close to the old text, mostly substituting modern spellings for the Old English words, but also occasionally substituting modern words for archaic ones. The poetry remains intact, though not always exactly word-for-word the same as Chaucer's. The Coghill translation is a good one for most high school students who want to enjoy the stories, learn about Chaucer and his times, and consider the main ideas presented by Chaucer rather than studying Old English and the exact text created by Chaucer's poetic genius. This manual can be used for either the Old English version or the modern translation. If you use the Old English version, the vocabulary words chosen won't match, making the vocabulary sections of the unit non-applicable. However, you will still be able to use the study guides, tests, writing assignments and other portions of the unit. The materials in this manual are based on the Prologue and thirteen of the tales--tales by the Knight, the Miller, the Reeve, the Shipman, the Prioress, the Nun's Priest, the Pardoner, the Wife of Bath, the Friar, the Summoner, the Clerk, the Merchant, and the Franklin. For each of these tales there are short answer study questions, multiple choice study/quiz questions, vocabulary worksheets, vocabulary and text word search puzzles, vocabulary and text crossword puzzles, and extra worksheets. Uses: These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adaped for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be different from many other materials they have seen--and very helpful.
