Students will collaborate in literary circles on the topic of theme development- I call this the Theme Tracker Task Force group. Students will track the four most prevalent theme topics as they read through the play. The chart/lesson provided allows students to track evidence of the thread of each topic throughout the text as they read. They are then able to discuss this evidence and theme development, further preparing for their theme analysis essay.

Theme Google Presentation/PowerPoint lesson will get students started in tracking the four important themes within this play. Guiding questions break down each theme for better understanding as students navigate Macbeth.

Students are provided with seven theme essay topics/questions to choose from as they begin to develop their essays. This allows for voice and choice in learning, yet each question specifically relates to the themes students have been tracking throughout the play.
