This is a PowerPoint to accompany my Common-Core aligned full teaching unit for Othello. It's visually appealing, with dynamic and engaging content that will get (and keep!) students' attention for the duration of a lesson! The slides are also interactive, in that space is given on them to write answers to questions that are found in the reading packets!
The PowerPoint is comprised of 153 slides that act as visual and interactive tools to be used with the Othello packets that are part of this unit. Information covered on the PowerPoint includes Shakespearean biographical and contextual information, Othello vocabulary, Othello WebQuest topics, and an overview of Shakespearean language.
Following these introductory concepts, the PowerPoint breaks down each act into scenes, with summary overviews of each that help students anticipate the reading. Within each scene, there are slides with the packet questions, including space on which to write answers while projecting the PowerPoint on a board. This is extremely helpful for promoting student engagement and interactivity!
There are also "sign up" slides for assigning reading roles, which is a great way to keep class organized!
The materials that accompany my PowerPoint can be found on my TpT page, and can be purchased individually or as a unit bundle. A description of the packets that align with the PowerPoint can be found below!
The series of packets for Acts 1-5 goes beyond basic question-and-answer style teaching strategies by reproducing several significant portions of the text for the purpose of guided translation and analysis practice. This method of introducing and evaluating the materials gives students the opportunity to practice and hone their skills in conducting text-depended analyses.
This can also be used with a "No Fear Shakespeare" version of the play; the "untranslated" selections from the text that appear in the packet could serve as a small, digestible introductions to Shakespeare's language. It is suitable for all levels of high-school students, as adaptations in the presentation of the material can easily be made.
The packets can be purchased individually by Act. Check out my store page if you'd rather purchase each individually: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Sellers-Im-Following/Add/Michelles-English-Resources
The packets for my Othello full unit are also available in bundle format. The bundle contains an introductory packet, individual packets for each act, two tests, and an extensive PowerPoint that is visually engaging and directly aligned with all of the unit materials.
