Reflection: Student Ownership THE CANTERBURY TALES: Wife of Bath Day 1 of 4 - Section 2: Wife of Bath: Who is she again?

 

Since students will have to form their own interpretations when reading the Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale, I think it is important for students to revisit the text and reread to understand who the Wife of Bath is according to Chaucer.  Students take ownership of their interpretations by revisiting the narrator's in the Prologue for the text.  

This will be vital when we read the Wife of Bath's Prologue in its entirety and examine how her Prologue informs her tale.
