Reflection: Pacing Meeting The Cast of Characters: Othello Act I (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Wrap up and Next Steps


My students did really well with the reading and discussion today...and we only got through the first scene. On one hand, this is going to be a little bit of a pacing problem because I am trying to keep up with a few other 10th grade teachers. On the other hand, this is a good thing because it means that the students were going into as much depth with interpretation as the complexity of the text requires. I will have to keep a close eye on this moving forward to make sure I am keeping the perfect balance of speed and fluency.
