Product Description
This is a great pre-reading/frontloading activity for reading Shakespeare's Macbeth. Print and cut out these lines to prep students for reading Shakespeare's language
- 33 lines, typed and spaced for cutting out easily
- selected from Act I of Macbeth to cover plot points, themes and characters
- numbered for reading chronologically
Activities for use:
1) Have students wander the classroom reading their lines to other students. Try it with different voices and inflections. (As if you are afraid, as if you are angry, as an accusation, as a request)
2) Have students read their lines in order, then again, then again faster.
3) Infer from these activities what some key words, issues or themes of Macbeth will be.
4) Generate questions based on these lines: who are �these three�? Who is Macbeth? What do they mean by Thane? Answer factual questions via research and make predictions based on interpretive questions.
5) Practice reading Shakespeare's language - work on inflection, emphasis, pacing and volume
