A 7 lesson scheme of work exploring ‘Macbeth’ by William Shakespeare and applying a range of explorative strategies, good for building character development and devising skills.
Includes lesson powerpoint, handouts file and potential homework tasks.
The SOW features practical tasks each lesson, a WHOOSH! to summarise the play, practical and written starters to settle lively classes (or which could be set as homework), steeped learning objectives, sentence starters for effective peer feedback and script extracts in both original language and modernised language (for differentiation.)
Techniques explored include: freeze-framing, soundscape, mime, thought-tapping, hot-seating, skeleton script, devising, on-text improvisation.
