This week’s essay topic: Choose an issue of importance to you – the issue could be personal, school related, local, political, or international in scope – and write an essay in which you explain the significance of that issue to yourself, your family, your community, or your generation. Can’t figure out what topics to use? Here are some to choose from:

We will be starting our work on Macbeth. YOU WILL BE THE TEACHER. You must start by taking notes on the 5 acts of MacbethHere is a guide to help you track the information you need from the notes. Wednesday you will be getting into your groups and working on your assigned acts.

1. Read a summary of the entire Act

You can use the resources from the blog to help you. You will share your summary orally with the class.

2. A chosen scene that has been re-written into a modern version

You will need to provide us with the actual text from one of the play’s Acts and re-write it so that we can understand and identify with it.  Sparknotes can help you with that.

3. A scene to be performed for the class

This scene may be one that you can do alone or you might have to ask a group member to help you.

4. Two important quotes and explain what they mean and why they’re important AND a soliloquy or an aside, explain its significant

5. Discuss a theme from our Tone and Theme handout and discuss / write how that theme is developed in Macbeth

6. A modern day comparison, either to the theme or a character. Explain the similarities

You will need to provide us with the actual text from one of the play’s Acts and re-write it so that we can understand and identify with it.  Sparknotes can help you with that.

7. A Facebook page and wall for a character from your assigned Act

Here is a PowerPoint template that you can use to help with the Facebook page.
