In Shakespeare's Macbeth, Macbeth is responsible for physically murdering King Duncan, yet the murder would never have occurred without Lady Macbeth's ambitious plan. Split the class into two large groups (or four smaller groups in which you would hold two separate trials) and give students a position to defend or persecute Lady Macbeth. This packet includes two preparation sheets for students as well as a suggested time frame for the trial. The time frame can easily be changed based on how long you would like the trial to take place. Students will need a day or two to practice for their trial and a day or two to present.
