1 Today’s Objective:  I will examine a text that presents a Historical Perspective so I can determine the cultural significance of the Moor in English Renaissance drama. You will need the following for today’s lesson:  SSR Book  Composition Book  SpringBoard Book  Be sure to pick up a pink Act I & II Quiz Review sheet from the folder!

2 SSR  Silently read a book of your choosing for 10 minutes. SSR Reflection  Are there any characters in your book who make poor decisions?  What causes them to make these decisions?  Do other characters influence them to make these decisions? If so, why do they succumb to the influence of these characters?

4  Today, you will read an essay that discusses the historical significance of the Moor and use a strategy to “chunk” a dense text.  You may work in your acting companies for this activity, but each person must complete his or her own handout for a daily grade.

5 Review: Levels of Questioning  Literal – the answer can be found in the text and does not require any inferences or conclusions.  Example: What did Harry Potter say to Hermione?  Interpretive – to form an answer, you must draw inferences or conclusions about the text.  Example: Why does Harry Potter feel responsible for ridding the wizarding world of Voldemort?  Universal – these questions connect the text to the larger world or to other works of literature.  Example: What can we learn about the fight between good and evil from the Harry Potter series?

6 Chunk 1: Paragraphs 1-3 (15 minutes)  Scan paragraphs 1-3 and highlight the words “Moor” or “Morocco.”  Reread the paragraphs. This time, pay attention to the images and characterizations of the Moor.  Highlight the words used to describe the characterization of the Moor. List at least 5 on your handout.  What stereotypes are present?  Create levels of questions for this chunk:  1 Literal  1 Interpretive  1 Universal

7 Chunk 2: Paragraphs 4-6 (25 minutes)  Locate four images that have been used so far to characterize the Moor (paragraphs 1-4). At least one of these images must come from paragraph 4.  Read paragraph 5 and locate examples of power.  Create levels of questions for this chunk.

8 Chunk 3: Paragraphs 7-9 (20 minutes)  Read the chunk and highlight the word, “Moor.” Note how this word is used.  Reread paragraph 7 and highlight two sentences that state what conflict “Othello, the Moor of Venice,” embodies.  Reread paragraph 8 and highlight what the Moor was a sign of and what the Moor was identified with. Record this information on your answer sheet.  Reread paragraph 9 and determine how outsiders are marginalized by a dominant society. Record this information on your answer sheet.  Create levels of questions for this chunk.

9  Closure Question What new information have you learned about the Moor and the history of Othello being performed? How can this understanding help us as we move onto Acts III – V and then write an analytical essay?
