(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.
