We're off on a ROAD TRIP! And subsequently our next unit: The Canterbury Tales!
The Cantebury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer is about a group of people who go on a pilgrimage or road trip to a religious site called Canterbury. Think about where people go nowadays on road trips and what you do along the ride. That's in essence the premise of the book! Now Chaucer wrote over 20 tales in the original, we will only be covering 5- including the Prologue with a TON of FUN along the way!
Vacay! Road Trip!
I hope everyone enjoyed their two days off and did well on their marking period 1 quarterlies!
We're wrapping up Book 3 of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and moving into Book 4! During the 3 days of Gawain's visit at the mysterious castle, the lord's wife is definitely testing his chivalric values, in particular, Courtesy, Pity, and Fellowship (aka Bro Code). With that being said, what is Bro or Girl Code? What "unwritten rules" do we as a gender tend to follow in both life and relationships? Keep in mind, back in the day, Bro Code was in essence one's chivalric values AND when in a relationship (or potential relationships) you followed the rules of Courtly Love. We're going to examine these "rules" and see of they still hold true today!
