Pre-order Items

  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario Ė the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

ZigZag Highly Recommended

Macbeth Activity Pack

With specialised worksheets to meet the needs of the new specifications

"I love the support for teachers within the teacherís introduction in the form of example answers and key points for teaching. I also really like the activity comparing Keatís poem La Belle Dame sans Merci to Macbeth. It is also so closely matched to the Assessment Objectives. It is overall a really entertaining resource for teachers to use. I think that this resource would really help to bring Shakespeare alive. There's superb colour and images; I like the running 'castle' theme throughout. It is clear that the author loves the play."
J Whitbread, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
