FREE GCSE English Teaching Resources: Macbeth - Context and Tension  

(16-slide PowerPoint with one worksheet)

This differentiated resource introduces the historical context to Macbeth in an engaging physical activity before reinforcing how the context impacts on the characters through a game of ‘Grandmother Knock’.  Once understanding is established, the resource then links this knowledge to the text in a quote search and final ‘game’ to ensure all students have made progress.

This resource makes studying Shakespeare memorable and enjoyable and as such helps students retain knowledge and quotations more readily than might be done through just pen and paper exercises.
