Collaborative Discussion and Rehearsal


In this lesson, students read and analyze Macbeth Act 5.4, 5.5, and 5.6, in which both sides prepare for battle and Macbeth learns of Lady Macbeth’s death. Students explore Shakespeare’s use of figurative language to develop the character of Macbeth in these scenes by engaging in an evidence-based discussion. Students also prepare for the interpretive dramatic reading activity in 10.4.2 Lesson 20 through a group discussion in which they rehearse their selected excerpt and select an interpretive dramatic reading technique.
