I would like for each of my students to own a copy of Othello. Othello is the only Shakespeare play we do sophomore year, and the students love it, but they find the language very difficult. We do not own enough books in my school for the students to take Othello home with them. I encourage students to buy the book so they can read it at home and take notes in it, but not all of them do. I would like to be able to hand each student a copy that is the same edition so that when I say turn to Act V.1.125, they can all get to the same spot quickly. I also like to hand out “dirty book” awards for the students who “talk to their texts” through highlighting and note taking. Please help me buy one class set, 35 books.
