World Lit: DIY Inferno Friday!

  • ELAGSE9-10RL9 Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).

Learning Target: I can modernize Dante’s Inferno and create my own version of Hell; I will analyze the source material of the original text and transform it to my own liking.

Activator: Daily video! This is a parody of a song I’m sure you’ve heard, “Let it Go.” Yes, from Frozen! This is the Dante’s Inferno version!

Work Session: Today you guys will be doing a “Make Your Own Inferno” project. Just follow the directions on the packet and have fun, be creative!!

There will be no major writing project for this unit – THIS PACKET IS YOUR MAJOR WRITING GRADE FOR THIS UNIT. In other words, DO THIS FOR AN EASY A.

Closing Session: Trade your packets with a friend and enjoy how sick and twisted your classmates can be!

Assessment: Packets will be graded

Differentiation: Process (student pull out); product (various means of assessment for different DIY Infernos)
