After your students study William Shakespeare's Macbeth, have them write a theme essay to express how the author develops the theme throughout the play. The students will compose a five-paragraph essay to analyze a particular theme and demonstrate how it is presented through literary devices.
This resource comes with:
+An essay outline and directions worksheet
+A graphic organizer for struggling students to gather their ideas before they begin their outline
This product is a wonderful purchase for any class studying Macbeth because it is appropriate for any student. Because students are able to choose and create their own themes from the play, they can pick one based on their interest level. The outline and graphic organizer also covers your students who may have IEPs or 504 plans. The rubric is easy to use and easy to understand!
From start to finish, it usually takes my class two to three class periods to complete this assessment.
