Macbeth Scene Direction Activity
-This creative Shakespeare assignment can be used at any point during a reading of Macbeth, but it is truly useful after reading the play. This project will take several days to complete in and outside of class.
The assignment requires a small group of students to re-imagine a scene from the play. In other words, students transplant a scene into a new time and place (1970's Los Angeles, current day New York, a Viking settlement, etc.) with matching dialogue, props, and costumes. It requires students to closely examine text, so it certainly aligns with the Common Core's reading standards, but students must be creative and ultimately perform their new scene from Macbeth in front of the class as well. The document features very specific directions, and all you will need is this, willing students, and copies of the play!
**Note: can be adapted to work with any play.
