Hooked on Macbeth: how to teach Macbeth using memory-based learning techniques

(0)
Ideal for Key Stage 3 and 4, this is a completely unique way to approach the teaching of Macbeth. Using a memory-peg system, students are able to remember the key details, characters and themes of the play by visualising trigger images pegged on locations around their bedroom. The images are repeatedly ‘visited’, each time adding more details to enable them to review the play without needing notes. Please watch the YouTube video to gain an overview of the process. I have used this technique successfully in both London and my present school in China.
