Reflection: Classroom Setup Macbeth's Fruitless Crown Makes His Fear in Banquo Run Deep: 3.1-3.3 Performances - Section 2: All Students Participate: Assigning Roles and Preparing to Present


The key to managing all the parts of a complicated lesson lies in trusting students to do their job and in having all the details planned in advance. To that end, when students came into the room, I had a plan on the board. I had the documents they needed ready to pass out. I had the prop and costume boxes out. I made sure that students who need additional support were with strong students who work more independently than some of my students. To illustrate, in this class I have an autistic student and two other students in special services. I also have some students with big attendance problems and some who have very low reading skills. The class is a melting pot in every sense of the word. But students have really been enjoying Macbeth and know an activity is on the table today. They like activities and know that to get more they must manage their time wisely and fulfill their duties. Additionally, they know that their performances will factor into their work collection grades at the end of the unit. All these things work to put the pieces together in a successful lesson.
