Here's what Shannon B. said: The Canterbury Tales can be overwhelming to both teach and learn. This guide is so comprehensive and integrative--whether you're reading the whole collection or just a selection of the stories.

Amy B. said: When I found out I would have to teach The Canterbury Tales for the first time, I immediately looked to see if this company offered a unit on it. Just as I expected, this unit is amazingly thorough, and it offers way more than I could use. I was able to give the students a thorough background before beginning, and there were resources to use for as many tales as I wished to teach. Thank you for being a dependable resource! This unit was well worth my money, and I will continue to use parts of it in years to come.

More praise for this Canterbury Tales Guide:

Debbra V. said: As with other units from this publisher, this resource is thorough and makes teaching the subject a breeze. I loved all of the background material. I used this in summer school and students had a shorter period of time to work with the material, so we divided up the information and students presented their part to the class. I look forward to using this during longer semester.

Warren's Wordsmiths said: This resource is so incredibly helpful. It is so organized and helps me to stay on top of my teaching. I love that it has resources for myself as a teacher as well.

Stella Literarium said: I LOVE THIS RESOURCE!! Although it seems pricey at first, it is WELL-worth the price. This is the third packet for Canterbury Tales that I bought - but I am wishing I had bought it first!! Most packets choose a few stories - but if I'm not doing the same stories, the activities aren't helpful. This resources has over 300 pages of resources that go through all (most? I haven't closely checked) of the stories. There are notes, vocab, and quizzes for each Tale along with answer keys.
