Product Description
Collaborative Activities for Macbeth: How would you like a quick and easy way to guide your students through effective group discussions, one that keeps them focused and on task? These collaboration placemats do just that! Use these 8.5 x 14" placemats to organize student group discussions about the play. Just print off one per group and your students will have clear instructions to guide their work together.

There are placemats for discussions on:

--Character development for Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Banquo, Macduff, Duncan and Malcolm.

--Comparing and contrasting Lady Macbeth with Macbeth, and Macbeth with Banquo, and Macbeth with Macduff. There is also one for Duncan and his sons.

--Discussions about the responsibility of Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and the supernatural in the outcome of the tragedy.

--Discussions about thematic development.

--Discussions about significant passages.

Students will follow the numbered steps on each placemat. Each one asks them to begin with some private reflection, brainstorming or writing. Next, they will share with a partner or the whole group. After that, the instructions vary, depending on the task. Regardless, students will think, write, speak and listen as they work together to do the task. After, you can finish with a full class discussion or with a short writing assignment for each student. I use these as a skill building activity, rather than for assessment, but you can choose to use them as a first step for a formal assignment.

NOTE: these placemats are in colour but copy perfectly fine in grey scale.
