This biography of Dante Alighieri focuses on his seminal work, the Divine Comedy
, and its role in helping to increase literacy rates throughout Europe. The biography also details Dante's conflict with the Catholic Church and his exile from his home city of Florence, Italy.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
