Remember "double double toil and trouble"? Oh yeah! We're bringing a little Shakespeare into the middle school classroom!
This is a full 2 - 3 day lesson plan (depends on how much class time you have) which walks you and the students through a comparison & analysis of an excerpt from Shakespeare's play Macbeth and then has them comparing the witches from the play to the witch in Jack Prelutsky's poem "The Witch."
HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
- An organized lesson plan page (aligned to 6th - 8th grade CCSS and TEKS)
- An idea sheet with instructions / ideas for you to consider when teaching the lesson
- A mini-lesson Power Point that literally walks you and the students through the lesson itself (with built-in questions and step-by-step tasks to do with the poems)
- The tasks to do with the poems (that you can use again and again for any poem)
- EXTRA BONUS: Another separate document full of ideas with links to other online videos, read-alouds, poems, short stories, etc. for right around Halloween time
