Macbeth Lessons

Macbeth Workshops

Each lesson will cover a different aspect of the play. Students develop the critical thinking skills needed for the the GCSE English literature exam.

Students have access to the lesson materials before the session date. This givens them opportunity, if they want, to print off any information that they need and to look over the reading before the lesson.

it is assumed that students will have some understanding of the plot and characters before the lesson begins. These lessons are to develop exam skills and critical thinking, rather than to cover the plot of the play.
