Reflection: Student Ownership Background on Chaucer and THE CANTERBURY TALES - Section 2: Background: Chaucer and THE CANTERBURY TALES

 

I like this activity because students have to make sense of the information presented to them and they are required to make notes on what they deem significant.  Note-taking is an important skill for college and career readiness.  They must write detailed notes over a sustained time period.  They use writing to write down what is significant to them, reflecting on the material as it is presented, and by writing, they must process the information.
