A great pre-reading presentation to get your students interested in Macbeth, and help them understand the historical context as well as the author's purpose.
The presentation includes the background as to why Shakespeare chose to write Macbeth, the Globe Theatre and how the play was initially performed, and the social and political climate at the time.
It encourages students to look for Shakespeare's key messages and acts as a great stepping stone to get them to analyze why he included specific phrases in the play.
The worksheet guides the students and helps ensure that they take notes on the most important points covered.
All materials are ready to go but can be edited if you want to add your own ideas.
There are links to additional resources - videos that you can choose to use to help reinforce the points covered in the presentation.
The presentation and worksheet will take 30 minutes of class time. If you choose to use the additional resources, it can take up to an hour.
I have dual citizenship (British and American) and work to bring my experience to the classroom in an engaging way.
