KS3 KS4 GCSE SOW - AQA English Lit Paper1 - Shakespeare Macbeth Play Scheme of Work -  - 13 Lessons
This scheme of work contains 13 lessons with over 35 resources, taking students right through the play. It is a comprehensive scheme of work that was incredibly successful with Year 9 students of varying abilities. It includes a reading, writing and speaking & listening assessment. This SOW includes film clips and drama to really engage students with the play. Opportunities to differentiate tasks for higher or lower abilities are highlighted in green in the SOW.

Whilst the scheme was put together by me, some resources are taken from the RSC Shakespeare Toolkit for Teachers.

The SOW has the following reading, writing and speaking & listening assessments:

READING - Starting with this speech (Macbeth’s soliloquy in Act 2, Scene 1), explain how far you think Shakespeare presents Macbeth as a tragic hero.

WRITING - Letter from Macbeth to Lady Macbeth arguing for or against her ideas.

SPEAKING & LISTENING - Dramatic performance of Act 3, Scene 4 (the banquet scene with the ghost of Banquo)
