A six-week summer seminar for fifteen school teachers on Chaucer's CANTERBURY TALES and its cultural context.

The application is for funding for a six-weeek seminar for school teachers, to be held at Yale University from June 26 through August 4, 2007, on The "Canterbury Tales" and Medieval Culture. Most schools teach some medieval literature, and especially Chaucer, and yet this is the area of English literature and history about which teachers generally know the least and abou which they are least secure. The seminar is designed to enable teachers to feel fully comfortable teaching both Chaucer and other medieval literary texts. The ultimate goal is to increase the teaching of medieval culture in the schools, and to bring the latest research, and especially research tools, within the grasp of school teachers so that they can expand their own range of available materials.
