Macbeth Lesson Plans by ChezElle©

NOVEL: Macbeth by William Shakespeare
GRADE LEVEL: 10-12
CLASS TIME: 1 class period

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

This activity is the perfect way to get your students in the right frame of mind for study of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Working individually, or in pairs, students are prompted to think about some big idea that run throughout the play, without having to relate the ideas to the plot and characters just yet.

Some key questions include:
-Success is worth any price you have to pay - agree or disagree?
-With power comes happiness - agree or disagree?
-If a political ruler is destroying a country, that person should be overthrown by any means necessary - agree or disagree?

Plus, this activity comes with four bonus discussion questions that can be used for individual journal writing, group discussions, or conversation with the entire class! This activity is a great way to link theme with real life and student opinion.
