  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

After Canterbury Tales

Telling modern pilgrims' tales

Imaginative unit which enables students to create their own 'pilgrim' and write their own Canterbury Tale, using the narrative structure of Chaucer's famous Canterbury Tales.

  • Step-by-step teacher notes
  • Geared towards the new Key Stage 3 curriculum
  • Students follow clear stylistic guidelines to write creatively
  • Detailed, easy to follow worksheets with differentiation tasks
  • Opportunity to incorporate ICT at the end of the unit to link the students' work together as a 'mini website'

“I think this resource is well structured and detailed...it enhances learning tremendously.” Joyce Aghahowa, English teacher

“This resource enhances writing and reading skills and provides further opportunity for speaking and listening too...it has fired my imagination now to teach something more demanding and perhaps try an idea I would have thought impossible at KS3.” Nicola Holloway, Head of English

“It provides stimulation for pupils in their own writing while helping them gain a deeper understanding of Chaucer's writing methods. If I was teaching any Chaucer at KS3 level I would definitely purchase this resource.” Michelle Evans, English teacher
