The groups are just your average high school groups but instead of being like a class system they are just different groups.
Yeah pretty much
Yeah, it’s true
If I were to walk through the school for the first time, I would make an upper and a middle class. We don’t really have a lower class because our school seems to be pretty tight with groups since it’s on the smaller side. These groups compare to the different groups in The Canterbury Tales because they too had different social groups based on what background you came from.
That's true but I think theres more mixing in groups now than there was then in social class.
I feel like we view people as people whereas then if you were in the Labatores you were considered nothing.
People separate themselves off into groups that are similar. This applies because people were separated into classes.
Most of the time people that think the same normally form in the same group.
That’s true. If you have the same outlook on things you tend to get along better
Walking into our school for the first time you can definitely see which people hang out with which people. There is a divide in our groups just as there is a divide in the people of the Canterbury tales due to their class. Our divide tends to be due to typical high school stereotypes.
I agree. People can really tell who you tend to hang out with by just walking through the school.
I classify people by their attitudes towards the people they surround. The categories would be the ‘well known people’ and reserved individuals. From there, they can be categorized by similar hobbies of interest that bring them together. They compare with the groups in the book because it illustrates how people of different origins are seen from other people’s perception.
Attitude is a big factor
I agree, attitude has a lot to do with the groups we associate with.
Attitude definitely plays a big factor
That is a very good way to sort people!
When you walk into the school there are the jocks, nerds, fine arts, and so many other groups. There are different groups in the Canterbury Tales like the knights, nobles, poets, and other groups.
It seems to help a reader outline a character in some ways even if they’re described accurately.
I don't know if I'd classify people like that, it leaves out a lot of people in my head
I like how you picked out fine arts and poets
I suppose I would classify people as the "popular" kids, the skater park kids, the "nerds", the outliers(loners) and the others(a group of people that doesn't really fit into the other groups but is still somehow a group). I haven't finished the Canterbury Tales descriptions so I can't really compare all of them yet
I agree that we have many different groups in our school, but they aren’t as prominent as they were in olden times.
Groups seems to be more fluid with individual kids.
I agree, our groups are a bit less defined.
In the midevil era they had social classes that compare to our stereotypical classes.
I think this one is hard to explain because we’ve been here for four years now and we know the “groups”, but if it were my first time walking through passing periods I could identify the different classes. They compare to the Canterbury Tales because of maybe stereotypes.
Stereotypes and social classes
Cliques are just high school groups. Instead of the feudal system it’s anpopu contest
Anyone walking through a new school environment will usually stereotype each group they see. Jocks, nerds, band geeks, popular, etc.
People with the same interests form groups with other people with the sema interests.
This is true. People who share common interests usually clique together more easily.
The cliques are based a lot upon interest and also status. These are very similar because they are both based upon social status and interests or occupation.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
