Canterbury Tales and Vocabulary

Please be certain you are keeping track of all of your Vocabulary assignments and getting them turned in for Brit Lit.

We are providing ample class time to complete all of your work, so there is really no excuse.

We are knee deep into Canterbury Tales and you should have a very good understanding of what Chaucer is trying to say about humanity during the Middle Ages.

Bring your Novel for reading on Friday and prepare for the Canterbury Tales assessment on Monday!!
