Many of these images are farcical and I believe they would be appealing to this age group, though the Italian movies they are from would not be appropriate for this age group. In order to equate the more engaging pictures to lessons in the classroom, I believe that I would pick out the tales which correlate with them, such as the Wife of Bath’s Tale, and read it as I displayed some of these images along the way. For older students, such as those in high school, I believe that the more romantic images would be appealing, such as those by Anne Anderson, which also lead to another great resource, “The Gateway to Geoffrey Chaucer” by Emily Underdown. This book is still available in print, and could be used to introduce these students to another interpretation of Geoffrey Chaucer’s work, making it easier to understand. Included are these beautiful pictures throughout, I believe this would also engage the students with shorter attention spans, that need something which appeals to their visual learning style. As for students above the high school level, I think that the entire site could be utilized, in some unique and creative ways, to bring another layer of understanding to Chaucer. With multiple artist depictions, the applications are endless, and for older students, it could provide some great material with which to round out a power point presentation, or other school project. In the case of this website alone, there are many ways that a teacher, or student, could learn about how other people have interpreted his works into images. Perhaps art students would even be inspired to come up with some images of their own, after viewing these.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
