I looked forever for reading guides for Shakespeare that help the kids do close reading and focus in on lines that are important at the time and will become important later. I have spent years refining these questions that I have used for AP literature and general literature classes. These reading guides are editable to fit your classes. Some of the questions are simply about plot; others focus on the deeper themes of the play Othello.
I don't grade these but use these as a basis for all of my discussion, quizzes and tests.
These questions are designed for kids to see the timeless relevance of the play.
