Illuminating Chaucer, an interdisciplinary project created with the New York City Lab School, showcases the creativity of students as they immersed themselves in the analysis of medieval times and Middle English literature. This project provided them with an opportunity to creatively express their reactions to classic works of literature
USING THIS PUBLICATION IN THE CLASSROOM
The classics are often difficult to understand, even for experienced readers. As a result, students are often hesitant or frustrated as they engage with texts like The Canterbury Tales. However, by reimagining how they engage with these texts, we might be able to ease their experiences.
Diversifying your instruction is particularly useful as you explore ways prepare students for Regents exams. We invite you to use this text to reimagine the teaching of literature and explore how your students can create their own rhymes inspired and informed by their interpretations of the classics.
