Students choose a fictional/literary character, historical figure and current person to put into a specific level of Dante's Inferno. Using Structure & Style of Writing (from the Institute for Excellence in Writing), students will justify their choices in properly formatted paragraphs. There is also a visual component to the project. In class, we used a variety of mediums for our visuals and presented them on the classroom wall as a giant representation of Hell.
