Product Description
Macbeth is not just for those in high school and college. Middle school students can enjoy it, too. With this mini-unit supply of materials, you can introduce Shakespeare with a quick PowerPoint—look on my TpT page (not included here), read aloud a narrative version of the play—free on my TPT page, use the close-reading guide—includes a key, assign an open-ended writing prompt—includes a key, and give a reading comprehension assessment—includes a key. Students are excited to experience Shakespeare, and they can do so at a manageable level with this purchase.

Here is the plan:
1) Introduce the mini-unit using the complementary PowerPoint, which you can find on my TpT page, reasonably priced.
2) Read aloud and discuss the narrative version of Macbeth, which you can find on my TpT page for free.
3) Students review, using the close-reading guide.
4) Students plan and write the answer to an open-ended response prompt.
5) Assess students understanding, using the reading the reading quiz.
