Reflection: Student Ownership Othello Character Charts - Section 4: Wrap up and Next Steps


Since we added all our reading time the beginning of class, I only had a few minutes left at the end of class. During this time, I had students share the cool tools/resources they've found/used to help with their comprehension of Othello...and they had some really great ideas!

A few had downloaded an app for their phones that reads the play for them. A few others said they had done some searches for stage plays on Youtube and had been reading along while watching. Others said they had been using the No Fear Shakespeare modern translation online.

I'm sure there are conflicting opinions on how much we should encourage students to seek resources beyond the text itself. Here are some thoughts on that...
