GCSE English Teaching Resources: Macbeth and the Theme of Courage 

(12 slide PowerPoint presentation and 3 worksheets)

This resource opens with a thought-provoking quote from Julius Caesar about the theme of courage. Courage is then defined through a range of definitions which are in turn used to analyse an extract from the text.  

This PowerPoint is designed to help students consider Macbeth as courageous initially, then not so courageous in the central scenes, before looking at how he is presented in the final battle scene.  Activities are ‘play based’ and include a Treasure Hunt and a relatable first impressions activity that securely acknowledges the need for SMSC in lessons. Differentiated worksheets and answers are included. This lesson concludes with an exam style question in order to allow students to demonstrate their understanding.

This GCSE English resource is fun, engaging and is shaped appropriately in order to get ‘that light bulb moment’ all teachers love to hear!
