Reflective Teaching Report (Target length 1,000 words) Your written report should include the following: a) A lesson plan b) Explanation of the chosen theory (what and why) with references c) Explanation of the applied pedagogical procedure (What, how and why) with references d) Reflective discussion including explanation of students’ interaction in classroom e) Evaluation of the lesson *lesson plan is attached, no need for point a b*beggining with definition of reading skill there are many theories and assumptions have been made about L2 reading. this lesson will deliver: Schemata theory ‘ you can use the Anderson and Pearson schema theoritic view (Hudson, 2011)”, sociocultural theory (or constructivisim.. also not sure) and iteractive theory (bottom up with top down) c*then, there are various of pedagogical prosedures conducted regarding teaching L2 reading. the lesson utilizes the pedagogies : activating the prior knowladge, skimmimg, scanning d*students’ reaction: they interact with the lesson, the enjoyed the class, they were motivated, they participate effectivly, the fullfill the tasks, the teacher did not struggle with classroom managment. e* instructor’s evaluation of the lesson lot’s of pre-reading activities warmup, vocabulary review, video the warm-up game would be related to the vocabulary of the lesson to add unity to the lesson before playing the video it would be better to ask questions to let them focus on what the teacher wants them to pay attention to the teacher did well with asking questions to elicit answers from the students the teacher did well with producing some vocab like (independent) but with other vocabularies the teacher gave a lot of illustrations without letting students to participate TTT more than STT the explicit instructions was very good however, the students needed a model or example to skimming and scanning activity. the post reading stage, was examining the vocabulary comprehinision which is not suitable in reading lesson. teacher gave a enough time for all the stages exept for the post reading stage, the post reading strategy (vocab quiz) was good but not in the right time to be in the post reading **the main issue teacher spend more time on prereading stage, they need to save time for the actual reading stage.

Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell. 

In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.

God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.

Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.

To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
