'Othello': A Study Commentary (Teaching Copy)

This 145-page resource supports teachers and students working towards AP and IB examinations. It is a line-by-line analysis of the play at a level, and in a manner, that all senior students will find accessible and engaging. It asks, of each scene, ‘What’s really happening here?’ and offers detailed answers – while challenging students, by means of brief but penetrating writing tasks, to find answers of their own. It also provides essay questions in the style of AP and IB. From an AP Central Review: “The Guide includes fine ‘Commentary’, ‘Overview,’ and ‘Student Response’ sections, as well as practice commentaries. It has recently been revised to become more interrogative – less commentary, more questions that call for students to do the discovering.” It is available in a Teaching Copy (this one) and a Student Edition (with a separate Answers section at the end). It effectively supports the Common Core State Standards CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1-6 and CC.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11.12.1-6. It has recently been republished in paperback under the title ‘Study Guide: An Othello Commentary: Teaching Copy‘ and with the ISBNs 978-1071227701 and 107122770X.
