No, your students do not have to read The Canterbury Tales to discuss Geoffrey Chaucer's book... I've created a worksheet with links to youtube videos in which the The Canterbury Tales is portraid by animation (and song). The worksheet only includes 5 simple questions and don't include characters or stories. It is very basic and mainly gives you the possibility to offer English literature in an accessible way. Of course you may want to add your own questions when you want to deal with the stories or characters... Includes key.
