Dante’s Divine Comedy As Told to Young People



Very few people dare try to adapt Dante’s Divine Comedy for a younger audience!  Professor-poet Joseph Tusiani has accomplished a minor miracle, and we are so glad to include his retelling of Dante in our Dialectic Literature Stitches studies collection.  This three-week study covers Tusiani’s entire text, though you will need to purchase a copy of the book separately.  Please note that, upon purchase, this Stitches book study is accessible via Tapestry Online (TOGO).  Feel free to peruse the title page here in the product listing for more details about the book study, and perhaps browse a pages online before purchasing to see if it matches your student’s reading level!  If you do buy this product, we strongly recommend that you also take some time to explore the Teaching Dialectic Literature document that will appear with it on TOGO.  Finally, don’t forget to check out the Literary Toolbox page that will appear for you in the Stitches section of Year 2, Unit 1 on TOGO.
