Scribe Period 3, 9/30/13, Honors English 9

Today in class we started out by getting in our Othello quiz groups and finishing the quizzes that we started on Friday. We then turned in the quizzes to Mr. Rosenberg (Mrs. Smith's substitute).After that we went over the SAT 6 vocab words that can be found in the book.
After finishing the quiz we assigned parts from Act 5 and then acted it out until about line 130 on page 245.

The parts in this scene included:

  • Iago
  • Roderigo
  • Casio
  • Othello
  • Lodovico
  • Gratiano 
  • Bianca
  • Emilia
  • Desdemona
  • Montano
In the part that we read in class the main idea was that Roderigo attacks Cassio like Iago told him to do. However it is at night and it is dark. Cassio defends himself against Roderigo and stabs him, but does not kill him. Iago then comes and cuts Cassio in the leg and kills Roderigo. Cassio is injured but not dead, however Othello hears him yell from a distance and thinks that he is dead. Othello, thinking that Cassio is dead, sets off to kill Desdemona in her bed. He smothers her and while she is suffocating, Emilia walks into the bedroom. That is where we ended the reading.

The Homework for today was to work on SAT 6 exercises and to review Act 5 of Othello. The SAT exercises will be do on Friday (as usual). More details of what we did in class can be found here:
