Welcome to Circle 3: GLUTTONY!

Today we are going to read a Sparknotes Summary of circle 3, canto VI. This particular circle isn’t in our book, so we’re turning to some outside sources for it. After we finish the discussion of the circle, you’ll do your collaborative poster project activity for the day, and then…. dundunDUN! We have a VIDEO!

This is an episode of the TV show Face Off, which is on Syfy, and it’s all about movie makeups. In this challenge, the contestants had to make characters inspired by Dante’s Inferno, which I think you will appreciate 🙂

After we watch the video, we will end class with this prompt: The guy that went home on Face Off. What did he do wrong? If you had his assignment in the challenge, how would you interpret it and what would you create? Be creative, feel free to draw a picture!!
