Product Description
This product includes a 6 minute video exploring jealousy in 'Othello' by William Shakespeare. Both Othello and Iago are discussed in relation to the way that jealousy manifests within them.

To get students to think about the many ways in which jealousy can reveal itself I collected a range of examples from the text to show how it surfaces again and again. To relate this to our own lives I chose a range of images which reflect different aspects of jealousy. Why are we jealous of others and what does it make us do or feel as a result? A match up activity links these with examples from 'Othello' in what becomes an unusual way of exploring the jealousy theme.

As a think-pair-share task this exercise can stimulate some lively debate and also help students relate to Shakespeare on a more personal level.

Students should also provide justification for their match ups. This writing exercise is excellent practice in critical thinking and reasoning with reference to a text. The focus would not so much be on 'right' or 'wrong' answers just thoughtful or well-considered ones.

By the time all the extracts have been examined and discussed, an excellent understanding of the theme of jealousy will be in place as well as insight into the way it is reflected through characterization.
