    Friday, January 19:
    Let's start today with a quickwrite:
    Think about the last time you watched a horror movie or visited a house of horror at an amusement park. What specific sounds, sights, and smells were present? What effect did they have?
    We're going to review those elements of figurative language, then jump into a close reading of the text.

    Guide Homework: if you were going on a journey through Hell, whom would you choose as your guide and why?
    Explain in a paragraph response (8-10 quality sentences).

    This will be our entrée into Canto III of Inferno, which is the Vestibule (Entryway) to Hell. After you read Canto III, we will discuss and complete reading questions!
    If we have time, I will have you pull some imagery (more of that figurative language stuff) and draw what you see.
    Keep up on Reading Qs!

    Ok, we are going to move into the reading of Dante's actual words today!
