In this project, students translate a monologue, dialogue or soliloquy from Othello into contemporary language and syntax without losing the meaning of the speech. Teachers can use this idea for any Shakespearean play by choosing the parts to be presented from that play. This offering includes: 26 speeches from the play, Teacher Notes, an Essay Rubric and a Translation/Presentation Rubric.
