I’m thrilled to share that the pedagogy article describing my Chaucerian Miscellany assignment that won the 2020 Teaching Association for Medieval Studies award is now published in Once and Future Classroom 17.1 (Spring 2021)! This assignment was designed to help my students engage with Chaucer in personally meaningful ways while also developing the skills of an English major. You can read it here.
Many thanks to all of the students who took my classes, completed this assignment, and shared their thoughts about it, and to my colleagues at various colleges and universities who used it with their classes and shared how it worked for them. The best part of the job is always when you are able to help your students really engage with what you are teaching them and I’m always glad when an assignment I designed hits the mark!
