This is a 7 week (42 lessons) A Level scheme of work for Othello including assessments. The scheme is designed to be used with Edexcel A Level Literature Component 1 but can translate easily across boards; it can also be used for Edexcel A Level English Language and Literature Unit 3. This scheme explores the conventions of dramatic tragedy. Students will investigate the biographical, literary, social, historical, and philosophical contexts of Othello. Students will complete an in-depth investigation of the language, form and structure of Othello using key terminology. They will also use the critical anthology to develop their own critical position on the text (the critical anthology is free and can be found on the Edexcel website). It comes with an accompanying PowerPoint of lessons and several free online resources to be used in activities. The PowerPoint is a comprehensive step-by-step (activity-by-activity) resource to be used alongside the scheme.
