Macbeth Themes

This is a resource to introduce classes to Themes in Macbeth. The pupils love it. there is a handdrawn version and a printed version. Firstly, watch the GCSE video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zpms82p/video Pupils need to colour code every theme in a different colour. As they watch the video, colour code each bubble to match each theme. I ususally play the video through twice.

POWER AND CONFLICT POETRY work SHEETS

I have put notes for each poem in the order of SMILE: Structure Mood Imagery Language Empathy/Links The idea is that the pupils add their own quotations in the blank boxes. You may disagree with some of the categories but feel free to amend. This can be used when first teaching or as a revision tool.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL GCSE

(0)
This is a resource made to accompany the York notes series. This can be used also as a stand alone scheme of work. There is a large power point which has supporting worksheets which you can either print or use images straight from the powerpoint. Page references are from the Scholastic edition of the test. I put this together on an old laptop so you may find some of the fonts haven’t translated over well. If it looks like Hieroglyphics, simply highlight and change to comic sans. Apologies for that! Contains slides on: the Preface Atmosphere Justice The past Scrooge’s unhappy childhood Fezziwig’s party Scrooge’s changing character the Ghosts Context social class Ignorance and Want Money Tiny Tim Scrooges transformation The Narrator
