Friends, it's hard to believe, but I have less than a week left in my summer at Yale. I finished my final project today and have only a few more tales to read before I get to the end of The Canterbury Tales. It's not quite time to leave yet, but it's getting there. Real life beckons.

The reason I am attending this seminar, of course, is to learn how to teach The Canterbury Tales to my students back home. Having said that, I have been working on my final project, which is a compilation of creative assignments for my students. Above is a glog, which I completed at glogster.com.

We are all familiar with the image of St. Francis of Assisi, the benevolent, bearded man who speaks to animals and allows the birds to perch on his shoulders. However, the real Francis was a controversial figure who impelled many people to abandon their worldly lives and roam the country in poverty.
Francis, pictured in his simple robe and cord, which were the only articles of clothing he believed a friar needed. (He made allowances for a pair of shoes, if absolutely necessary.)

I've been in New Haven for nine days so far, and today I found myself referring to my dorm room as "home." While I do miss my friends and family, I do feel at home here, and I wanted to share some of the places I see on a daily basis.
