A graphic organiser (PDF) for high-ability GCSE English Literature pupils studying Macbeth. AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc.

Are you tired of PowerPoint lessons? Looking for a way for pupils to work more independently whilst keeping organised notes? Then a graphic organiser might work for you and your class.

The graphic organiser is 60 pages long. It has been designed to be printed off back-to-back. Every scene in the play has two dedicated pages which will work best if the booklet is stapled, treasury-tagged or bound so that both pages for the scene can be viewed at the same time as an open booklet. There is a white edge alongside each page to allow for securing. (Please see preview more more details)

Each scene contains the following:
A synopsis
Page one - Three themes (from a selection of six) with high-level exploratory questions with room for note-making
Page two -A question on each of the following as related to the scene: dramatic tragedy genre, Shakespeare’s method, and context, with room for note-making.

At the start of the booklet there is a glossary of characterisations and structural devices related to the dramatic tragedy genre

At the back of the booklet, there is an extra page for note-making.

Other ways to use this booklet:
Print off a teacher copy and photocopy the scenes you wish to focus on in detail only
Page one for classroom teaching with page two for homework, or vice versa
Group work with pupils completing different parts of the booklet followed by whole class feedback
Individual, silent work
For when you’re absent and you need to set structured cover for a lesson
For that long-term absent, but pupil who needs a structured approach to catching up
For those able students who are great at discussion, but cannot organise their notes in their exercise book
Focused, active revision

Best wishes,
