Teaching Othello for A Level Literature or Lang/Lit

Why should you attend? 

A cross-specification course to reinvigorate both your own reading of Othello and your teaching strategies. As well as sessions providing resources and practical strategies for teaching the text in its literary and generic context, the day will include a short lecture by Dr Eric Langley of UCL.

What will the course cover?

  • A range of approaches for reading and analysing the text including performance, stylistics and critical materials.
  • Othello as tragedy – practical strategies for introducing, exploring and using concepts and criticism effectively to illuminate the text.
  • The play in its context – how to ensure context deepens rather than dominates responses.
  • Revising the text – strategies to extend students’ understanding rather than simply consolidate it.

NB. This course is a repeat of the Othello course run in November 2016.


First-class training session. Well-planned and delivered. Lucy is a great trainer – upbeat, enthusiastic and knowledgeable!
