Thinking about 'Othello'

Here are 10 exercises on quotations in Othello. They are designed for pair-work 15-minute sessions in class, but work perfectly well for individuals. You need to know the play well, so these are for revision at a late stage of study. The purpose is to make your mind work hard: retrieving factual details, certainly, about the sequence of the play, individual quotations and so on, but more importantly know making you think and create connections, and have a debate with a partner.
You don’t need to write on the original sheet itself: just take a piece of paper and jot down your responses. When finished find the quotation in context from the text itself, and then fill in any gaps.

Thank you for posting all of the resources, many of which I share with my AP students. They especially enjoy the ShowMe presentations on _Hamlet_ and _The Great Gatsby_. Have those gone missing, or am I using outdated technology on my side of the pond? Thanks again! - Paddy Graham, Great Neck South High School, West Egg, New York, America, The World, The Universe
