There are lots of connections between Act 1 of Othello and Act 3. With these questions, I attempt to get the students to read closely, focus in on certain lines and see the connections between what was said in Act 1 and in Act 3.
I have used these questions with all levels from low level to AP. These questions make the students reread and find the significance in lines they would otherwise skip. It prevents sparknoting and finding the general overview of the play.
