The Tragedy of Othello, Moor of Venice (Reader's Theater) (Paperback)
Act out Othello's tragic story of vengeance and betrayal! Iago is angry at Othello for not promoting him, so he schemes to ruin Othello's life with his lies, ruining his own in the process. The six roles in this script match different reading levels, enabling teachers to use differentiation and English language learner strategies in their instruction. These strategies allow all students to engage in the same activity, regardless of their current reading level. All students can feel successful and can gain confidence in their reading fluency. Students can also practice reading aloud, interacting cooperatively, and using expressive voices and gestures while performing the story together. An accompanying poem and song give readers additional resources to practice fluency in an engaging way. This dynamic script is the perfect tool for a classroom of varied readers!
