Inferno Facebook


Your task is to create a facebook page for someone placed in any of the circles from Dante's Inferno. There are nine levels to Dante's circles of Hell. Each circle of Dante's journey has a brief description, list of characters, quotes and anaylsis to help you better understand the people that would be found in this area of Dante's Hell.

Five facebook pages can be produced per level. Select your page well. You will need to choose your level and advise Mrs. Lawler which level or circle you will be submitting before creating the page. Because only five people per level or stage will be permitted, you should have at least two back up levels to choose from if your first choice is already full.

Your facebook page will contain the following REQUIRED elements:
(These items can be filled in on a Word Document template. Click here for template. BEFORE TYPING, please save the template to a blank word document by copying and pasting it to a new document. When template is complete, SAVE AS in your H Drive under your character's name).
  1. Main feature question,
  2. image (original or pasted),
  3. profile summary,
  4. generate postings on your wall - these should be three phrases that would speak to the conditions in your circle.

Circle 4 Hoarders and Wasters
Circle 5 The Styx and The Wrathful
Circle 6 The Heretics and City of Dis
