This MTV and Othello lesson plan also includes:
After reading Acts III and IV of Othello, give your class a fun, interactive, music-related activity. Begin by asking high schoolers about songs they have heard in movies or plays. Let them look up the lyrics online and ruminate about the effects of those lyrics. They then apply these ideas to Desdemona's song in Act IV, scene 3. Learners create their own versions of the song, modernizing it in order to understand its significance to the play. Engage your scholars with music and theater!
