PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains a list of topics and related themes for Shakespeare's play Macbeth.

Use this list of themes and topics as a springboard for discussions and essays. After students have completed a piece of literature, I have them compile a Topics/Themes list that they keep in their Writer's Notebooks. To do this, they first brainstorm a list of topics and then convert them into theme statements. Then, we share the list as a class.

Afterwards, students then select a theme to use as the thematic claim in a literary analysis essay. I do this in lieu of giving my students essay prompts because it taps into their motivation by allowing them the freedom to choose their own essay topics based upon their own interpretations of the piece of literature. It's also an excellent strategy for enabling a more organic writing process.

Use this document as a key, or differentiate this activity by giving students the list and allowing them to select a theme for an essay.

The Topics/Themes list a versatile tool that is sure to enrich students' interaction with the play.
