This is a 'highly recommended' (see below) book of teaching ideas and activities based around Howard Gardner’s Theory of the Multiple Intelligences.
It contains learning tasks that access visual, mathematic, verbal, kinaesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical and naturalistic learning approaches.
All activities are differentiated to provide a rich diet of learning opportunities that examine the play from a variety of angles.
Suitable for a wide range of learners and learning styles, these activities also access critical and creative thinking skills and perfectly complement most approaches to the teaching of Macbeth.
The book has been divided into three sections:
1) activities to do prior to reading the play
2) activities to do whilst reading the play
3) activities to do after having read the play.
Notes on how best to use the activity pages are provided at the start of each section.
The activities should take between 20 minutes and half an hour and can thus be used during the independent group work component of an English lesson.
The activities will allow students to respond to the text in a variety of ways, with an assortment of written tasks to develop their own writing skills
RECENTLY REVIEWED ON FACEBOOK BY A SOUTH AFRICAN TEACHER:
Katherine Myburgh: " I am a high school English teacher at a private school in Cape Town. I used this resource extensively last year with Grade 10 learners. They responded exceptionally well and really had a lot of fun during class time with the in-class activities. I would HIGHLY recommend this resource."
