Begin your Macbeth unit with this pre-reading activity. Students must agree or disagree with statements that deal with various themes from Macbeth. In pairs, they must write explanations to defend their answers. You can use this activity as a simple warm-up, or as a springboard for a class debate/discussion. My students loved it. At the end of the unit I gave them this guide again to see if the book had refuted or supported their original opinions.
