Product Description
This lesson aims to improve the students' understanding of one of the key scenes in William Shakespeare's Macbeth - Act 2 Scene 2. In particular, they learn to make insightful interpretations about Shakespeare's use of symbolism, and are enabled to understand how this may have affected Shakespearean audiences.

The lesson utilises a range of tasks, that require students to be visual and interactive learners. It follows this learning journey:
-Defining the key term 'symbolism' and establishing its importance as a literary technique;
Understanding the different objects that were used as symbols in Shakespeare's time through a fun multiple choice game;
-Reading and interpreting Act II Scene II, and establishing how symbolism is used throughout;
-Summarising the events of the scene;
-Analysing Shakespeare's intentions in using literary techniques, and considering audience reactions to them;
-Peer/self-evaluating the learning in the lesson.

Included in this resource pack are:
- A well-presented, thorough, and informative whole-lesson PowerPoint presentation;
- Resources for the reading and interpreting activity - full scene transcript with space for notes;
- A template to help scaffold the main task, complete with P.E.E instructions;
