1. After students have read Chaucer's The Wife of Bath's Tale, have them discuss the question that the knight has to answer on his quest.
2. Ask students if they think the responses to the question have changed since Chaucer's time.
3. Divide the class into groups of four or less.
4. Instruct groups to compose five questions that correspond with the question that the knight had to answer.
5. Have students decide on five people of various ages, genders, grades, and professions whom they can interview using the questions the group compiled.
6. Allow students class time and homework time to go on "a quest" to get the responses and, with the interviewee's consent, record at least one of the interviews.
7. Have groups to meet and compile the results of their responses and compare them to responses that the knight received.
8. Instruct students to create graphs and charts that reflect the results of the compiled responses.
9. Using the charts, graphs, and interviews, have students create an oral presentation which presents the answers that the group discovered in its modern day quest.
