The king of British literature can be celebrated any time of the year, but we tend to teach our Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales unit around the winter months. We bring in the sarcasm, irony, and parody, and satire with some Saturday Night Live clips along with some in-class performances . Are you looking for new and exciting ways to celebrate one of the best literary masterpieces of all time? Introducing The Canterbury Tales’ activities into your classroom will make for a fun and memorable unit. Even though it was written during he medieval time period, Chaucer’s work is timeless and humorous in nature. Students will love how their teacher will guide them along the pilgrimage to Thomas Becket’s shrine into their ELA classroom.
