Product Description

This is a fun way to shake up regular class discussions or Socratic Seminars. This activity is inspired by the "Change My Mind" meme, where a man sets up shop in public with a controversial opinion with the task at hand for others to change his mind. Students get a kick out of this concept and you will too!

Once your class has finished Macbeth, introduce the question: Whose fault was it? This activity will get students critically thinking about the play, gathering textual evidence, and presenting information that supports their argument. They get to challenge the teacher, too, which is an added bonus!
