Macbeth Hot Seating (Act 5, Scene 3)

(0)
This fun 1 hour 30 minute lesson includes 2 worksheets and can be spread over one or two lessons depending on the level of detail you want in the interview. Great for revision session, or for pupils who are approaching the end of the play and need a recap. The lesson focuses on AO2 in the drama question: Comment on their actions in the play, words they might say, values and attitudes using the text to help you gather ideas. My experience is that pupils get very involved and even those who are more reticent about acting can take part. Some of the questions they ask can be quite advanced and it really gets them thinking about the character’s different points of view. Weaker pupils benefit from the opportunity to review events in the play up until this point.
