Macbeth, Act 3 Scene 4, Banqo's Ghost

(0)
This is a super detailed lesson on Act 3 Scene 4 of Macbeth (The Banquet scene). I have used this multiple times and have found it perfect for higher ability students. However, it is also very easy to differentiate for mid-level and less-able students. Not only does it include a bunch of activities, it also contains a direct link to a performance of the scene on YouTube to make your lives a little easier. This is the perfect resource for this key scene and is probably best used for a double lesson. Hope it makes all your lives a little easier.
