Lesson Overview and Note to Teachers

My classes are held in 100-minute block sessions every other day.  

The lesson below outlines Day Two of a two-day lesson on Macbeth's downfall.  Students work together to answer text-dependent questions to review content we explored last class (Act IV, Scene ii through Act V, Scene i). Next they engage in collaborative reading of Act V, Scene ii through Act V, Scene viii, in No Fear Shakespeare: Macbeth (SparkNotes, 2003), answering text-dependent questions together to check their comprehension of the play's resolution.  Please view my narration video in this section for more information.

Review and Collaborative Reading

100 minutes

Today my students work in pairs, using text-dependent questions to review content we explored last class (Act IV, Scene ii through Act V, Scene i).  I return their tickets out (TICKET OUT - Macbeth's Fall)(Ticket Out: Student Work - Macbeth's Fall) from last class, summaries of the content and a response to what happened to Lady Macbeth in Act V, Scene i; I encourage them to use these for review if necessary.  Next, they read and discuss the remainder of the play (Act V, Scene ii through Act V, Scene vii), answering text-dependent questions to monitor their comprehension.
