When reading Othello, students may be drawn to the issue of race because our society still grapples with this issue today. But to focus just on ace will keep readers from exploring the other issues in the play which, along with race, help to make Othello one of the most powerful dramas to study.To see how the many issues in the play are interrelated, the class will divide into groups and focus on one aspect of the play. They will then share their findings, looking for relationships between issues. Students will learn to analyze a piece of literature by looking at it from one perspective and then by re-evaluating what they have discovered when other layers of meaning are added.

I really enjoyed this lesson plan because it used multiple facets of technology. The class wiki idea was a meaningful attribute of learning in that it was a cooperative means to have the class work as a group to report everything they had studied about the issues in Shakespeare's Othello. The level of integration for this lesson is definitely "infusion" because the lesson requires a number of different technologies to be in play. Another level of technology that I feel was reached was "adaptation" because the teacher did not give instruction on which technology to specifically use, but the use of technology was a center focus during the lesson.
