Act 3 Scene 4 Macbeth GCSE English Literature. Full lesson PowerPoint and resources.

Act 3 Scene 4 Macbeth GCSE English Literature. Full lesson PowerPoint and resources.

Everything you need to teach Act 3 Scene 4 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is also available as part of a bundle whereby a considerable saving can be made. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. No fear version is also included as a further scaffolding tool for lower ability learners. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do. PDF version is for preview purposes. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author! If you make a purchase and find the resource useful, why not get another one absolutely free? Simply leave a review for the resource purchased, email with your TES username alongside a link to the resource you would like. Your free resource will then be sent over right away!

A fully differentiated and resourced lesson that focusses on the role of Malcolm in the latter half of the play and how he tests Macduff to see how loyal and goodly he is. The lesson also looks at the concept of kingship and how Jacobean society viewed the role of the king. Is Macbeth or Malcolm better suited to the role and why might this be?
