Macbeth Act 1
This work pack is intended to support beginner EAL learners to access Act 1 of Macbeth when being studied as a class text. It is intended to be used in conjunction with resource packs on the other four acts of the play, and other EAL Nexus resources on Macbeth.
The aim of the pack is to enable beginner EAL learners to understand the plot of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, to become familiar with the main characters and their situation and to start to predict what might happen later in the play. There is a scene-by-scene summary in accessible English, accompanied by flashcards and DARTs activities. This is a highly visual resource with Manga-style illustrations to appeal to young people.
On the right hand side of this page are a number of documents that you can download for free. Please note that the Teaching Notes and Resources can be found in the pdf document (the first item on the list), whilst the PowerPoint document(s) include(s) presentation(s) which you can display on your interactive board in your classroom.
