Photo by Gary Warren, 1973
Why the photo?
It's an attempt to connect with the bloody story. America's obsession for the game of football is so like the Anglo-Saxon passion for war and violence illustrated in Macbeth. Like an Anglo-Saxon, I too appreciated, yea, loved passionately, this violent game! Like Macbeth himself, I decided to "catch the nearest way" in an effort to obtain the status I so longed for. My friend Gary snapped this photo of me in the fall of 1973 while I stood on the sidelines during a game, waiting to get back on offense. Ten minutes later, I was stretched out in agony on the gridiron with a blown out left knee.
PLEASE NOTE: MY COMPLETE MACBETH UNIT IS NOW AVAILABLE ALSO. If you are interested in obtaining all of the elements of this unit at a reduced price, enter "Wohlsdorf" in the search bar, and it will appear along with my other products.
These are designed as end-of-unit questions. The quizzes include 109 multiple choice and true-false questions, along with 11 essay questions. They are all based on my study guides, but naturally, you can do the work in reverse order and create your own study guides from this document as well.
I prefer to give my tests in smaller segments, so I like to give a shorter test after Act I of the play, for example, while students are doing an initial reading of Act II. You may do the same, or you may combine all of the questions into one test if you prefer.
