Macbeth Fortune Cookie Prophecy Pre- Reading Activity

A fun activity to introduce students to the concept of prophecy and to later question whether Macbeth was driven by greed and manipulated into creating his own destiny, or whether the witches’ prophecies really did come true! Cut out the 30 “prophecies” provided and have students pick one from a hat. Give students a week to see if any of their prophecies come true (they are all pretty vague, some of them are bound to!) There is a summative handout for students to complete after and from here a general class discussion and sharing of stories will give students something to think about and later link to the question of Macbeth’s fate.

Fashion Magazine - A resource to use for a variety of English topics

A fully interactive e-magazine designed using online software Joomag.

The fact that the magazine is female orientated can also be linked to issues regarding gender.

The front cover has a QR code which takes you to the online version of the magazine. The attached video introduces you to some of the interactive features throughout the magazine.
