This assignment will assist students with characterization, symbolism, and annotation, as well as finding/using evidence to support their claims.
Students will be pretending to be psychologists, studying the psychosis of the characters in the play!
Students are to complete the packet (I put my students in groups of three and had them complete it together) that accompanies Acts I-II of Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Macbeth. They are to read the acts to gain background knowledge of the characters. Then they will complete the packet, using evidence they find in the play, to characterize the character of their choice (either Macbeth or Lady Macbeth)!
