Othello movie ok Othello movie ok Document Transcript

  • Permission Slip DATE: November 21, 2010 TO: Parents of English 12 seniors FROM: Mr. Lane, English Teacher RE: Shakespeare’s Othello A s you may know, our class has just finished the unit on Renaissance literature with a focus on Shakespeare. We have completed Macbeth, and next week, we plan to show another of his plays, Othello. This version of the play stars Laurence Fishburne and Kenneth Branagh. Though written over 400 years ago, this play (as most of Shakespeare’s plays do) touches on themes and ideas that we still struggle with today. It is an excellent movie which does a wonderful job in picturing the precise elements which we covered. However, it is rated “R” for some mature content and violence. If it is all right for your student to see this in class, please sign and check the appropriate box below. If you do not wish your student to see it, check that box. There will be no grade penalty for not seeing the movie. I will simply assign separate work. Please note that if this form is not returned by Friday, November 19th, I will assume you have not given your permission. If you have questions about the movie, I encourage you to view it yourself or contact me. Thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely, Richard Lane Check and detach the permission slip below Yes, my student may see the movie Othello in class No, I prefer my child be given a different assignment during the showing of the movie. _____________________________________________ Student’s name (PRINT) _________________________________________________ Parent’s Signature
