Reviewer Comments:

This lesson plan offers a great opportunity to deepen understanding of Othello. Students are asked to work collaboratively in small groups to rewrite each Act of the play in modern/slang language, and act it out for the class. Used to enhance the understanding of Othello, this lesson is technically complete and rich in content and pedagogy, relying on best practices in instruction.
