  • Can I type or does my paper have to be handwritten?

    Posted by:

    You can handwrite or type.  The choice is yours.

     

    However, if you type your font must be in a Middle Age type font.

  • How do you want us to fit everything onto one page of our project?

    Posted by:

    The example provided on page 3 of your rubric is a good indication or sample of what your prologue, pilgrim and description should look like.  However, I realize you may not be able to fit your tale on the front of the page of your presentation.  

    You can do the following . . .

    You can out the tale on the back of your paper if you need too.

    Or

    You can begin the tale on the front part of your paper and move some of it to the backside of your paper.

  • Do we have to memorize our prologue and our tale?

    Posted by:

    No!

    You will be reading from your typed or handwritten document you made for this project.

     

    You can memorize it if you want too.  :)

  • How will people be able to hear us if we are presenting our speech outside?

    Posted by:

    You will be provided a bull horn and will tell your tale through the bull horn for everyone to hear.

  • Do we have to dress the part of our pilgrim?

    Posted by:

    You can if you want to.  I strongly encourage you to dress the part because this would be fun and it would add to the overall theme of the modern day pilgrimage we will be having during this time.

     

    You can either dress as the original pilgrim or the one you have brought up to modern times.  The choice is up to you.

     

    Also, you can bring your items up and change into you part because I cannot be sure what day you will actually present but at least by having your items ready you can be prepared immediately for your presentation.

  • Are we going to an actual church destination?

    Posted by:

    NO!  We are going out to the front of the school, weather permitting, and just having tales being told of our pilgrims.  If we intended on having a real destination somewhere - it would have been an agreed upon destination created at the beginning of this project.  

     

    This is a just a re-enactment of a traveling pilgrimage but in moderm terms.  No church visits will be implemented.  SMH!

  • Do we have to keep our story clean?

    Posted by:

    Dark humor is allowed but anything inappropriate must be in the form of euphemisms or metaphors so that your audience can interpret what you mean.  If you say out loud the true specifics of information - points will be deducted.  Basically, a large amount of points will be deducted.  This is a school environment and we must keep it clean.  I realize Chaucer's background but - KEEP IT CLEAN, PEOPLE!!!!

  • Does both the Prologue and the Tale have to Rhyme?

    Posted by:

    The Prologue has to rhyme but your tale does not.

     

    If both your tale and prologue rhyme, I will provide extra bonus points.  Not sure how much though but I will provide something.  :)

  • What does our Prologue have to be about exactly?

    Posted by:

    Your Prologue must be about your Pilgrim you signed up for.  

    It has to be ten lines only!  Now if you go over ten lines that is okay but it cannot be more than 15 lines if you have to write a tale as well.

    The only exceptions for the amount of lines in the prologue are the following pilgrims:

     

    The Knight - is optional.  Chaucer gives him an introduction in Chaucer's Prologue but  he does not have a prologue in his own tale.  He merely wants to tell a tale and move on.  He is extremely humble and does not want to brag about himself in any manner at all.  Again, you have a prologue if you want but it is not necessary.  This tale still has to add up to four minutes of speaking.

     

    The Second Nun and Three Priests - only has two lines in Chaucer's Prologue.  Therefore, you can have two lines only in your prologue but you will have to make up the remaining eight lines in your tale of the second nun and three priests.  This still has to add up to 4 minutes of speaking.

     

    The Guildmen - only have the information presented in Chaucer's Prologue but they do not have a Prologue or a tale.  Therefore, your presentation must be a prologue of lines that resemble a 4 minute prologue that rhymes.

  • Do we have an "Actual Destination" we are going to?

    Posted by:

    Yes, outside either in the front of the school or in the parking lot area between the school and the baseball fields.  

     

    If it rains, we will be in one of the LGI's or our classroom.  

     

    A suggestion would be to bring a foldable lawn chair, some bottled water and if you want to bring a snack for yourself or others that would be ideal too.

  • How will you time us?

    Posted by:

    More than likely, I am going to have you set up your timer on your cell phone so you will know how much time you have remaining to get through both your prologue and your tale.

    I will also use the timer on my cell phone as well.

  • What kind of tale would the modern pilgrim tell?

    Posted by:

    The Modern Day Pilgrim would tell any tale relating to their personality or character traits.  A story that would suit that particular pilgrim.
