Macbeth Comprehension Questions for Every Scene

Macbeth Comprehension Questions for Every Scene

I’ve created this collection of questions because I thought it would be helpful to have them all in one place. I’ve spent too many hours creating quick comprehension quizzes on slips of paper, losing them and having to write them all over again the following year. Although this has taken time to put together it will save time in the long run! It is a Word document collection of 10 comprehension questions, with answers, for every single scene in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. They can be used as starter activities, homework, plenaries or a quick knowledge check during the lesson. I’ve created them for GCSE but they could also be used for KS3. The idea is for them to provide you with a quick check of your students’ knowledge of the scene and, of course, to save you preparation time. They cover a range of questions from simple comprehension to missing words on key quotations. I’ve deliberately added at least one question for each scene which can be discussed at length after the quiz. I’ve also turned the questions for each scene into a YouTube video if you would prefer to use that (free) format. They involve no preparation as the answers are included in the video. They can be found on my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpQBaeLx2EJYRzAw9tA5W5A?view_as=subscriber
