Advanced Placement English high-school students in Opelousas, La., re-enacted the pilgrimage of "The Canterbury Tales" through their community as part of their study of Geoffrey Chaucer's work. Students researched and wrote essays on their characters to recite on their journey, and wrote poems in the style of the work on the modern embodiment of their characters. They also chose a modern counterpart to their character. "It really helps the students understand Chaucer's classic by bringing it to life," Rodney Johnson, Opelousas High School principal, said.
