This 37-slide PowerPoint provides a scene-by-scene, line-by-line reading guide for William Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth. Includes background information about the Globe Theatre, important literary devices found throughout the play, and an anticipation activity on the roles of fate, choice, and chance that will keep students thinking and engaged as they delve into the story. Can be used during class read-alouds to help students focus on the most important lines and to promote discussion; can also be shared with students to guide independent reading assignments.
I've used this reading guide for eight years in my 11th-grade classes, ranging from collaborative environments with students with learning/reading disabilities to college preparatory and Honors-level classes. You can edit, remove, and add material to fit your students' needs. This reading guide is essentially my lesson plan for the entire five-week unit; I hope you find it as helpful as I have!
