Scribe 1/24

No Donuts today! Big Bummer.

The homework for today is to work on the presentation. The requirements are listed below:

Dante’s Hell in the Modern World

Answer the following questions in a typed paper along with creating a visual interpretation of your answer and perception of Hell for the modern world.

Dante carefully classified sin and assigned various levels of Hell to specific sins. The punishments he meted out to the sinners often peculiarly suited their offenses. Suppose Dante asked you to create your own interpretation of Hell based on the sins we now see.
What categories of sins would be the most prevalent?
How would these sins be categorized and arranged? What would be the worst? Why?
What would be the particular punishment for each sin?
What would be the justification for that punishment?
What would Hell look like? Why?
If you had to assign well-known people to the various categories, who would be there? Why would they be there?

Most importantly, throughout this project, I expect to be dazzled and amazed at the level of thought and consideration you or your group puts into assignment. Blow me away!!!

Also, today we worked on the rubric for the Semester Project. This is what we came up with:

Semester Project
- What is the meaning of life?
- What is your philosophy on life?

We decided for the semester project that…
- It will mainly be a presentation with a reflective paper on the process itself and how it affected you personally and professionally (academically). Paper is a reflection of the process
- You have to pull experiences from all aspects of your life
- We are doing it in groups of 4 to 5 people
- We are going to be presenting the last two days of classes
- Each group is allowed to choose which ever one of the three choices above, and alter it if they want to, but you have to get it checked off with Mrs. Smith.
