Reviews - What do customers think about Othello: Reading Level 5-6 (William Shakespeare) (Easy Reading Old World Literature: Level 5)?
great for low level readers Jan 23, 2009
I am a teacher of high need high school students. They shut down when they saw the original text but this book is a great way to introduce Othello and it's much less intimidating. I will incorporate this and the Shakespeare text together.
Othello for middle grades?!? Mar 12, 2004
Yes, it can be done! This is an excellent treatment of the Othello story, told so that an average 4th or 5th grader can understand the plot. Vocabulary words, comprehension questions (and games!), and a list of interdisciplinary teaching suggestions, too! Yes, some of the beautiful flow of Shakespeare's original language is missing... but would you really like to explain to your chilks what "the beast with two backs" means? My 6th grader found the text quite easy to follow, and it prepared her well when she saw Othello performed on stage the next week. I suggest using this text as a jumping off point before exposing your child to the live stage version. The other work texts in this series are also just as finely crafted.
