William Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Othello’ remains a celebrated text, still being performed worldwide on-stage and also enjoying a number of reimaged film versions. The ‘Black Lives Matter’ and the ‘Me Too’ movements make this an essential text to study as students in the post-modern world. I have taught this text a number of times and have used this specific (revised) resource to lead my teaching in class, as a distance learning material (Google Meet lessons), as a homework assignment and even as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.
This beautifully illustrated 39 slide PowerPoint lesson provides a step by step guide in A Level essay writing, working around the question:
‘Discuss Shakespeare’s characterisation of Desdemona in the first three acts of Othello – (i) What ideas and concepts does Shakespeare explore through Desdemona’s actions and choices?’
The study materials contained within this PowerPoint lesson provide approximately 4 hours teaching time in class. This is a complete resource with no additional work required from the teacher, enjoy!
