Macbeth plot using Simpsons cartoon strip

author avatar

Created by

I've adapted this from a powerpoint using freeze frames from &'The Simpson&';s' version of Macbeth which aired in September (this was kindly provided by another TES user). I laminated this and had students work in pairs. They used this in conjunction with the card sort activity to place a card over the frame which contained that particular feature. At the end of the activity students should conclude that this is a tragedy and be able to identify the elements that make it so.

    This will be really useful with my less able KS3 class - especially the cartoon strip. Thanks for sharing!
