Here is a lesson plan that will prepare your students for the study of William Shakespeare's Macbeth! Students will learn the essential questions that will be addressed by reading Macbeth, and the Common Core standards that will be addressed in the unit. As they move through the lesson, they will:
+Engage in Silent Reading Time
+Complete a warm up anticipation guide and activity
+Complete a Padlet Station Activity where they read information on the Elizabethan Era, the Globe Theater, the play of Macbeth, and watch a video on William Shakespeare's biography. They will answer questions as they move through each station.
*As an added bonus, there is a slide on the PowerPoint for a Mindfulness Activity if you enjoy doing that with your class!
*This resource comes with the PowerPoint that will take them through each portion of the lesson, the anticipation guide worksheet, the link to the Padlet activity, and the response worksheet for the Padlet activity.
*Note: The last question on the station activity can be done BEFORE or AFTER reading Act One - you can modify it either way.
