Shakespeare, Othello, English 382
Shakespeare's Othello contains crucial lessons that are important for secondary students to understand. Lessons learned by the play's main characters—both male and female—can serve as a guide to help students find relevance in Shakespeare's words and find solutions to their problems. This paper addresses five topics that are particularly meaningful to the young adult experience: social transitioning, trust establishment, jealousy avoidance, reputation preservation, and integrity maintenance. It is vital for students to learn the social lessons available through the study, discussion, and application of literature.
Intensive reading, discussion, and (in some sections) viewing of plays from the comedy, tragedy, romance, and history genres.
