Product Description
I usually use this gallery walk before reading the play. The four themes I focus on are ambition, deception, power corrupts, and superstition.

I print and cut the 12 images and the quotes/questions that go with them. They are all named with the theme they address and a number. Then, I paste them onto brightly colored paper. I hang these up around my classroom—one theme per wall. This gets them up and moving around! I give students the entire hour after our bellringer (usually about 45 minutes) and collect their papers at the end.

Also included is a “teacher copy” that has smaller versions of the images as well as all the quotes and questions that students had to go with them, to make grading their responses easier. I usually do a participation grade, as long as their answers are complete and make sense.

Other possible uses and adaptations:
- This could also work after reading the play as a way to take these themes from the play and apply them to a broader area.
- Students could post sticky notes near each image with specific examples from the play that support that theme.
- This could assist students in brainstorming for an essay assignment that addresses these themes.
