Othello Newspaper Article Assignment Sheet

Day 1:  Welcome back from break- today is the first day of the second semester!

Review updates to ENG-12 Syllabus- 2nd Semester Syllabus


Daily assignment- Your task: Write a one page Argument essay with a group of 2. If you are absent, work on your own and print out your own essay. (it is your responsibility) DUE AT THE END OF CLASS DAY 2.

1.Research on the web the major events of 2017.What kind of events? Political, social, economic, sports, entertainment, etc.

2.With your group, choose what you think is the most important event of 2017 – this is an event that will have a lasting impact, including an impact on you and your future.

3.Write a summary of your event; this means explain the event to your reader.

4.Write a claim in which you assert that your event is the most important of 2017. Here’s an example from 2012:

Because it has sparked an unusual dialogue in the U.S. about gun violence, the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December is the most significant event of 2012.

5.Add evidence for your claim. Here’s just one little example:

Unbelievably, some politicians – even Republicans – are stating that “all options” need to be examined, including tougher gun laws.

6.Here’s a hard part of your requirement: I also want you to explain why 2 other significant events were rejected by your group. This serves as a brief counterargument with refutation. Here’s my one short example:

Although the 2012 shooting of Gabrielle Giffords stunned the nation, it did not provoke the dialogue people are having today about what should be done to decrease the number of shootings in the U.S.

7.     Come up with a creative title. Put all 3 names/period # under the title and email me with the text directly into the email BEFORE THE BELL DAY 2.

8.     APA citations are great!  Don't forget to give credit where credit is due.
Here’s how:According to an article in The Breeze, the “Sandy Hook tragedy is a tipping point” (Breeze, 2011, para. 2)


Paragraph order: 1.) summary 2.) claim 3.) evidence 4.) counterclaim 5.) conclusion *Printed out in MLA format due before the bell day 2.


Day 2: Day 2 is a writing day. By the end of the class, each group (individual students who are absent either Day 1 or Day 2) should print and turn in their one page (minimum) mini-argument about the most significant event of 2017. Make sure you email me your assignment to your partner so they have a copy as well. Don't forget to include all members of the group in the subject line along with your period # so you receive full credit. (you will need this essay for class day 4!) Thanks!

VENETIANTIMES Lieutenant of Venice’s Lieutenant Arrested By Jake Hurrell – January 19th 2013 CYPRUS – The Lieutenant of Venice, Othello was quite embarrassed of his own Lieutenants actions last night. Cassio, Othello’s Lieutenant was arrested last night at Othello’s celebration for the defeat of the Turkish fleet. Cassio was arrested after violently attacking Roderigo, a Venetian gentleman. Cassio’s arrests consist of intoxication and public disturbance. Othello speaks of Cassio’s feat “Whats; the matter; That you unlace your reputation thus; And spend your rich opinion for the name; Of a night-brawler? Although realizing his actions, “Reputaion, reputation, reputation! O, I have lost my; reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what; remains is my bestial. ” Cassio’s behaviour did not go un-noticed and was shortly dismissed as Othello’s Lieutenant, a hard earned position. Cassio describes the persuader of his violent actions, alcohol “O; thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be; known by, let us call thee devil! ” Othello, Lieutenant of Venice

Witness at the party, Iago depicts the scene he saw, “There comes a fellow crying out for help,; And Cassio following him with determined sword; to execute him. Sir, this gentleman; Steps into Cassio and entreats his pause. ; Myself the crying fellow did pursue,; Lest by his clamour-as it so fell out-; The town might fall in fright. He, swift of foot,; Outran my purpose; and I return’d the rather; For that I heard the clink and fall of swords…” Local police department suspects Cassio was antagonized but they are still unclear as to how and why Cassio was brought to this violent manner. Cassio was arrested as well as fired from his job.
