Mocking Modern Life

Twelfth graders read "The Nun's Priest's Tale" and "The Rape of the Lock" then brainstorm possible topics for a contemporary mock epic and possible "grandiose" words and phrases for common objects and activities. They write a mock epic in the style of Chaucer or Pope about some trivial event or aspect of social life in contemporary American society.
