This 45-page document is a comprehensive student-centered readers guide to Shakepeare's Othello. A packet is included for each of the four acts and all are centered around the Common Core Standards for both reading and writing. Activities include the following: translating key passages, citing and analyzing evidence, tracking themes, and using critical lenses such as feminism and psychoanalysis. Vocabulary and literary element work is also included, as are mini-lessons for writing analytical paragraphs using textual evidence (another Common Core standard!). Just print, copy, and go!
