Macbeth - A specially adapted version of Macbeth - Act 4 and activities for Spec ed, GCSE, adult literacy and ESOL students.
I wanted to adapt Macbeth so that Special Ed students could study - and enjoy the play. I have kept the original plot, character motivation, scenes etc, but it’s in simplified language. Because of this, the resource is also ideal for ANY student studying the play as it simplifies the plot so they can understand what’s happening and compare it with the difficult to read original. It will be easier for them to grasp what happens in each scene as the language is always difficult for anyone reading the play. It’s therefore also suitable for GCSE students, adult literacy classes and ESOL classes.
This is a complete unit of study of Act 4. (act 5 will follow soon).

28 power point slides (illustrated) with the adapted text of Macbeth.
