This resource booklet identifies the 3 main events of each scene in Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.
Students are challenged to fill in the blanks in the booklet by finding a supportive quotation and providing one sentence as to why.
Targetted towards KS4 students, this is a strong revision resource.

Tips on how to answer each question
A basic writing structure to answer each question
I've designed this for a lower ability set, but can easily be used with those more able - might require a bit of tweaking to the writing structures.
I created this resource after marking some class Macbeth assessments and coming across the same mistakes over and over again.
To ensure the same mistakes weren't made class-wide again, I challenged the students to teach each other (through whatever means they wished) ways of remembering the corrections.
This document contains the listed mistakes that I re-worded in a form of challenge:
Your task is to:
Find a way to ensure that the class remembers the difference between ‘to’ and ‘too’.
Eg: Go over to the draw, you too will find a postcard in there.
The students were then split into groups and given their 'challenge'. They had 15 minutes to prepare to teach their individual focus to the class.
A lot of fun was had and you can ammend them as you deem necessary!
