This activity is great for ending a teaching unit on Macbeth, as it gets students to do a TV news interview where Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are interviewed about all their actions and the events of the play (imagining that Macbeth wasn't killed at the end of the play). The activity is designed to get students to think about what motivated Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to do what they did, as well as think about how outside forces like the Witches played their part in causing the havoc in the story. It also is designed to allow students to imagine how Macbeth and Lady Macbeth would've reflected on the events if they had never died.
The resource gives appropriate context for what the students are about to do, a list of events that they should think about using to help form their questions and answers, detailed pointers on how to structure their interview, and an example of a typical question and answer that an interview may include.
This activity usually takes up a week's worth of lessons as students need to get into their groups, prepare their interviews, then present them in front of the class.
