GCSE English Macbeth Revision - For Year 11s who have studied the play

(0)
A series of lessons (5) designed to help students revisit ‘Macbeth’ having studied it previously. The opening slides look at how to get the most out of quotations, choosing which ones to learn carefully. Following ‘lessons’ include ‘Lady Macbeth’, ‘Power and Ambition’, selecting lesser known quotations or scenes to impress the examiner, mindmapping, and ‘Kingship’ I’ve also included an additional lesson I did using two reviews of Macbeth as a way of revising the story but also to tackle English Language Paper 2, question 4. It is lighthearted and supposed to be a bit of a mental break from the grind of revision.

SMILE - Guided analysis for ANY poem!

(0)
This is a step by step guide which works through Structure, Message, Imagery, Language and Emotions. Each element has a series of guided questions where students can choose what path to follow by checking them against their poem. They can then choose which basic interpretation most suits their poem. Each element can be used separately in lessons, or the PP can be used as an entire lesson of independent study. This is an excellent starting point for students who say they find poetry to hard but also to train students how to approach unseen poetry independently.
