This a simple but necessary resource. Students need to be able to remember the plot of the play in the exam even if they studied Macbeth at the beginning of Year 10 and they also need to be able to know the key details. Having a summary of the play with all the key points available to them will hugely help your students as it has helped my students the past few years!
