This package provides resources that can be used as either teaching resources or guides for students reading Macbeth. There is a detailed, one-page outline for each act that highlights the most important events, as well as the primary settings and characters. There is also a summary explanation of the situation at the end of the act. There is an annotated list of characters that is more detailed than most found in standard texts. The explanations summarize each of the main characters' position and role, especially in terms of how they relate to Macbeth. There is also an annotated map, again more detailed than most standard maps of Macbeth's Scotland. The map highlights the key locales in the play and summarizes what events or what other significance the site has to the play and the characters. The handouts are presented in an attractive, easily accessible format, the intention being to make them as student-friendly as possible. The handouts also can easily be used as overheads, with many possibilities of how they could be used with an entire class. These outlines will provide clarity and organization to students with lower reading skills and a foundation to move into the complex ideas and themes in the play for students with higher reading skills. This package should make Macbeth more accessible to students, and thus helping them become engaged in this exciting and complex play about psychology, power, and the supernatural. PLEASE NOTE: A COMPLETE PACKAGE IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM MY STORE WITH 52 PAGES OF NOTES. THE COMPLETE PACKAGE CONTAINS EVERYTHING IN THIS DOWNLOAD PLUS A DETAILED SCENE BY SCENE READING GUIDE TO THE PLAY.
