The remaining class will direct. Decide how the characters enter, how many attendants enter, where they stand, whether all or only some exit with Othello, where they stand in relation to each other, and so on.

4.    Perform subtext scenarios, focusing on intonation of words and nonverbal cues that express meaning to an audience.
