Beginning Our Journey with Othello December 3, 2009Posted by ammerahsaidi in Uncategorized.
We’ve begun today to read Act I, scene I of Othello and I am just as eager as you are to read on and learn more about this man named Othello who has so many around him angry and jealous.
I want you to engage this blog over the weekend as you read and re-read Act I. Ask questions, post your thoughts on certain quotes, share your feelings, state your predictions. This is REAL learning at its best–you should not be doing this work because you HAVE to but because you WANT to.
By Friday of next week, we would have finished reading the play. We will then begin a series of summative assessments which will include an essay exam, mini-essays to be completed in class, and discussions.
Remember that I will not be directing you with your essays, It’s your turn to take control of your learning and get started on your analytical essays as soon as you have a thesis (something you want to analyze connected to the play).
