The Pardoner's Prologue and Tale Activity Pack for A Level

Without a doubt the best resource I have seen in a very long time. A Baiden, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Activities arranged in three sections to facilitate independent and small group study of The Pardonerís Prologue and Tale as part of the AQA B English Literature specification, although it could easily be used as part of any open specification requirement. Importantly, brief notes and answers are given to support independent learning and stretch the activities for more able students.

  1. In Section One students are introduced to the context in which The Canterbury Tales is written, Chaucerís verse, the character of the Pardoner and the gothic genre.
  2. In Section Two comes a closer look at the text, section by section, from the beginning of The Pardonerís Prologue to the words of the Host at the end of The Pardonerís Tale.
  3. The final part, Section Three, concentrates specifically on the AQA B exam boardís requirements and the assessment objectives, examining how to achieve the best grade in the exam essay.
Activities vary to suit a range of abilities and learning styles: poster design, close reading, presentations, independent interpretations, group discussions, question and answers, text annotations and many more!

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5404)
"The resource has a number of merits: clearly organised into three parts; some Ďfuní activities, which can be beneficial during Sixth form lessons, particularly at the start of a course/Unit; clear links to Assessment Objectives at the end of the resource and some sensible guidance as to how to approach them." M Harris, English Teacher
"Really, really impressive. It is a well-thought out resource by a teacher who is clearly passionate about what s/he does. The activities are engaging with levels of differentiation I've never seen in anything that does not have that word in the title. There is no spoonfeeding here and plenty of opportunities for learners to link prior knowledge to the task at hand. Without a doubt the best resource I have seen in a very long time. I rarely purchase such things as I feel that teachers should not take something off the shelf, but rather create lessons that are personalised and differentiated for their particular cohorts.However, I would have no hesitation in using most of this resource needing only to tweak aspects to suit my learners." A Baiden, English Teacher
