English and Arts Collaboration

Ms. Richards' English 12 students have spent the last month becoming experts on Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and the Medieval Era. Working collaboratively,  groups filmed a video or created a storyboard to retell one of these renowned tales. Ms. Fusco played a special role in the project this year, creating a compendium of medieval music to present to the classes. Students listened to both church and 'street' style music originating from the Middle Ages, and were provided access to songs, samples, and information about music of Chaucer's time through an extensive GatorNet topics page. The Arts have come alive through this project!
