Here is everything you need to teach vocabulary with Dante's Inferno: 22 challenging words, defined in a key for you, along with activities to help students learn the words, and a multiple choice quiz. The activities include concept cards, a clever twist on flash cards, a crossword puzzle for homework, and also sentence stems. If you are sick of assigning vocab sentences only to get back gibberish, sentence stems may be the answer. I have written the first half of a sentence using each vocab word, and students have to finish the sentence, creating context clues, in such a way that proves they understand the meaning of the word. All of these activities are in a Word doc so you can tweak as you see fit.
