Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Othello Act III (Day 1 of 2) - Section 4: Wrap up and Next Steps


My students were AMAZING today. They were asking great questions and engaging in dialogue about the characters and plot that was way more complex than I could have imagined or hoped for. They are really angry with Iago and did a great job of identifying the nuances of the performances we listened to.

The bad news is (if you'll permit me to stop gushing for a minute), is that we were only able to listen to and analyze one scene completely. This means we will have to finish this activity tomorrow. I think I may have to rearrange tomorrow completely to allow for some flex/make up time, which I feel okay with doing given the depth of thinking it might allow.
