Class Experience

Learners will be able to read and analyze a piece of literature for context and meaning as well as compare it to contemporary literature and cultural references. 
I am offering this class as a response to a request. I have loved this book since I read excerpts from it when I was a freshman in high school as part of a literature lesson on epic poetry. I love that it can be viewed as a 'comedy' that is applicable to today's situations and the take home point is that no matter what circle you are in, it always comes full circle. I am a 7-12th grade certified Language Arts teacher and have spent a large part of my career in Special Education. I have experience with adapting and modifying material to meet student needs and interests levels. Novel studies are my favorite because we can discover the nuances and literary elements more fully with much more time! 
Each week students will be given a reading assignment (about 20 pages) and a related comprehension assignment. They will receive a related discussion question in the classroom forum. 
The teacher will provide all learning materials. Students will need a copy of "Dante's Inferno" which can be borrowed from the library or purchased for $4.99-7.99 for the novel or illustrated copy! 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner progress will be evaluated through participation in class discussion and completion of assignments. 
Learners will receive a common core matched written report upon request. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This book is suitable for the ages listed. Younger students may struggle with some of the themes and content. 
We will be using “Dante’s Inferno” and related translations, including study.com as references for our class discussion.
