Tomlinson 4 To me this epitomizes the problems facing teachers today, we learned in a different environment than students today use, and without the advantage, or disadvantage, of newer technology and terminology. By incorporating it into our lesson plans, though, we can still reach these students, and hopefully keep sharing these important literary works with each subsequent generation, and their new technologies and verbiages as well. I think that “Visualizing Chaucer” could be a helpful website when trying to reach students that would otherwise dismiss his works as too hard to understand, or not being relevant to their lives today. These images offer unique views of his characters and their stories, which students of all ages might enjoy. As modern resources become available, they offer alternative opportunities with which to teach the material of Geoffrey Chaucer, and by choosing lesson plans which are fun and engaging, that utilize these resources, we are giving students their best chance to learn about, and enjoy, his timeless works.

    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.
