Come to class prepared for a quiz. ;o)
Periods 1 & 7 Homework Due Monday, 1/14 AND Period 2 Homework Due Tuesday, 1/15:
ACTIVELY read and annotate through line 894 (Ps 1&7) and 987 (P2) of "The Franklin's Tale." Remember, if you come across words or references you do not understand, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to look them up! Read with a computer or phone at hand so you can investigate.
Then, check out the links we posted at the bottom of the second column of our Papers 5 & 6 tab under the Lit 1 section of the website. The "Medieval Times" section contains information about Medieval society, Chaucer, courtly love, gentilesse, and feudalism. Take notes on these topics, making sure to clearly identify sections for each of them in your notes. You need to know the information, so do not put this off. Since we want you to spend time learning about the times, we will NOT require you to research criticisms just yet.
We mentioned having you look up two over the weekend, but we will hold off on the annotated bibliographies for now. If you start researching already, great! We will certainly come back to them.
Ms. C. and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. See you Monday/Tuesday! :o)
