Product Description
This product includes a thoroughly researched, well substantiated 10 minute talk on video featuring a discussion of Desdemona - her character and problems frequently experienced with interpreting who she is.

There follows a crossword activity entitled 'Solving the puzzle of Desdemona'.

Three puzzles are provided with clues sourced from the beginning, middle and last part of the play. Each student receives a blank with 12/13 interpretations of extracts from the play dealing with Desdemona.

The teacher provides the 12/13 quotes (included) cut out of board as well as a copy of the blank puzzle. Learners match each analysis with the relevant extract and find the key word which fits in the puzzle to check their reasoning.

Pupils should complete the puzzle in class and a feedback session in which answers are shared and discussed will ensure that all the students have a very comprehensive idea of who Desdemona is.

This exercise is really valuable in demonstrating how conclusions about character are derived from the text.
