Product Description
This is an exceptional evaluation tool for multiple assignments related to Dante's Inferno. I typically have students choose two assignments to complete during the three weeks we spend reading The Inferno. They read The Inferno in groups of 4-6, but not every day or all period long (90 minute periods). [Another item I have for purchase is a guide for reading The Inferno, an invaluable tool for creating understanding of this challenging work of literature.] These rubrics are a way to address any student's learning style as they read Dante's Inferno. The rubrics include eleven different assignments which address four different learning styles, Mastery, Understanding, Interpersonal, and Self-Expressive. One of the assignments requires that students read a short story by Dan Simmons titled "Vanni Fucci Is Alive and Well and Living in Hell" which is available through internet search. My students typically read 20 to 24 of the cantos (I choose to skip the more esoteric ones, using the John Ciardi translation, by far the best; so the assignment to read one of the cantos not read in class gives them a choice of which one to do). Even though we skip reading the canto, students still read the summary at the start of the ones not read in full. Purchase includes support via TPT questions and direct email if necessary.
