More Ways into Shakespeare's Othello



Emphasising story, soliloquy, structure and performance, English teacher Sabrina Broadbent teaches a second masterclass on Shakespeare's Othello.

The Year 10 students use props and key quotations to play literary detectives, and piece together the plot outline of Othello. Sequencing work on a key soliloquy follows and finally they get their hands on a copy of the play, and take part in a workshop on a key scene using the Forum Theatre technique.

Sabrina uses the activities to help the students gain confidence in using Shakespeare's language, and to create a desire to study the play in depth.

This programme is the second in a two-part Shakespeare masterclass series, providing teachers with examples of how to make learning memorable.
