(This should be copied directly from the school and/or state curriculum. Depending upon how the new CORE Curriculum is rolled out, this could take the form of the following :) Standard (formerly referred to as strand)
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11-12.1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11-12.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including words with multiple meanings or language that is particularly fresh, engaging, or beautiful. (Include Shakespeare as well as other authors.)

Benchmark and/or Indicator Specific Lesson Goal/Link to Assessment (The above curriculum objective only needs to be re-worded if the Indicator isnt specific enough.) What is the specific lesson goal you will communicate to students (S)? Question: What is the Summative Assessment to the unit? (S)? Students will, create a character poster. [Their] poster will answer one of the themes depicted in our role playing exercise and listed on the back. [Students should] Choose the best characters to depict each theme. (Brown and Taylor) Question: How does this link to previous/future learning? Students have read Shakespearean language previously, and they have seen how some of his plays can apply to their life. In the future, they will be analyzing texts with varying syntax, so the practice here will help them to be prepared for the moment when information is shared in a complex or difficult manner. Materials needed Othello, Smart Board, Computer/ projector, students cell phones, the presentation on Shakespearean language.

Instructional Strategies 1. Entry (Set Induction or Lead) Good morning class! How was everybodys weekend? 5-10 minutes To start class, I want to make sure that everyone is on the right track for the senior narrative. I know that weve been talking about it for a while now, but I want you to know exactly how you will be graded. Take a minute and read through it. If you have any questions after reading, I planned about 5-10 minutes into todays class to discuss the senior narrative, so we can address any last minute questions that you have before 2. Transition While you do that, I will be passing out a notecard. On that notecard you will be writing three things: 3. Activity with Checks for Understanding 15-20 minutes On a notecard, students will write down the following: List three things that Iago did to get what he wanted. Include line numbers, you can use your worksheet from over the weekend. You have five minutes. How did they affect Othello? Overall, what have you learned from Iago? Also, on the back, write one question that you have about the scene. When youre done, hand them up to the front. Ill collect them and read a few, so keep them brief. Ive set aside about 15 minutes for this activity, and I want to get as far in the reading as we can for tomorrow. As a refresher, I will be reading several notecards aloud. 4. Transition Now that were all caught up on the reading, lets finish the chapter. Now, tomorrow were going to spend a good portion of class identifying the themes that show up in the text, so to prepare for that I have a worksheet prepared to get you thinking about them. As you listen or read today, I want you to start looking for moments that really show one of the following themes from the text. 5. Individual activity to large group activity. (The rest of the time that we have) Here is a worksheet that lists the possible themes in Othello. As we read, I want you to mark moments that really show these themes. Remember that, for the summative, youll be choosing a scene that illustrates a theme in this story, so I want you to start looking for them now. Youll delve into the earlier sections tomorrow, so just focus on these moments as we read.

Read Act III Scene IV of Othello Closure (possibly including Assessment) What moments have you marked down so far? Tomorrow, we will spend part of class identifying moments that have passed that demonstrate these themes so that you are ready for your summative. Remember that your summative is to identify a moment where these themes appear and to illustrate that as clearly as possible.
