This 156-page Commentary is a companion resource to the Teaching Copy (q.v.). The only difference is that the suggested responses to the study tasks have been relocated to a separate Answers Booklet at the end of the resource file so that teachers may withhold them if they wish, or dispense them on an ongoing basis so that students can undertake a self-assessment process, and at the same time deepen their understanding of how the play (and drama in general) ‘works’. This version of the resource, as does the Teaching Copy, effectively supports the Common Core State Standards CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1-6 and CC.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11.12.1-6. Purchase will allow one copy to be held on computer, and one print copy to be made. It has recently been republished in paperback under the title ‘Study Guide: A Macbeth Commentary: Student Edition‘ and with the ISBN 979-8613437337.
