Product Description
Four activities designed to ensure that students have an excellent understanding of Act 1 of Othello.

1. Cloze Test. Scene by scene fill in the blanks to test / remind students of key plot events.
2. Sequencing / Timeline activity. Events in Act 1 are presented in the incorrect order. The students' job is to re-order correctly. This revises key events, and gets them to remember the order in which events happened.
3. Multiple Choice Quiz / Assessment. Three page, 20 question test based on Act 1. Character information, plot details, and important quotations are included in this robust quiz.
4. Vocabulary crossword. This is a fun method of ensuring that students are familiar with difficult, unusual, or key words from Act 1. This product is also available as a standalone activity. See Othello - Act 1 Vocabulary Crossword.

This bundle will give you a range of activities which may be useful if teaching mixed ability groups. Alternatively, you could use some of the activities when you have first completed Act 1, and then use others when you need to revise the play.

The cloze activity gives students a good summary of the play. This is useful for weak students who may finding writing their own notes/summary difficult.

Solutions to each activity are included.

This is a Word document, so editable to suit your class.
