Macbeth Gifted and Talented Challenge Pack for GCSE
It is perfectly matched for higher ability GCSE students… It allows students to form their own opinions, and to critically analyse Shakespeare's craft - all A-grade skills. J Whitbread, G&T English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
A challenging activity pack which stretches your gifted and more able students during their exploration of Macbeth at GCSE. The activities demonstrate how to achieve the highest grades possible using aspects of Bloom’s Taxonomy and give students control over their own learning.
The resource covers the key areas of the play: important events, characters, context, language, structure, form, themes, ideas and interpretations. Within each key area, engaging and thought-provoking activities aim to:
- Prompt the recall of important points, aid comprehension and reinforce clear, advanced understanding
- Support literal and abstract analyses
- Enable students to apply their knowledge of the play to a new situation or an unseen extract, encourage individual interpretations and stimulate new, creative and individual ideas
Teacher’s notes and answers have been included for the more challenging tasks.
