Macbeth: Making Shakespeare Accessible for Teachers and Students (Classical Comics

Designed for the classroom, this resource book contains activities and exercises to help the teaching of "Macbeth." Although it was designed to be used alongside the "Macbeth" graphic novels, it can be used with any version of the play. It includes a broad range of topics including: structure, listening, understanding, motivation and character as well as key words, themes and literary techniques. The exercises have been approached from a cross-curriculum perspective so that they cover not only literature and literacy, but also history, technology, drama, reading, speaking, writing and art. The age range is 10 to 17, but of course within that span exists a broad spectrum of skill levels. Therefore, this study guide includes activities for all, providing many opportunities for differentiated teaching and for the tailoring of lessons to meet individual needs. Examples of some of the activities are: Background. The Globe Theatre - with comprehension questions. The history of the Scottish Play . Scene by scene synopsis Character. Macbeth - from hero to villain?. Lady Macbeth - discussion points and write her diary activity. King Duncan - questions to answer from the text Language. Metaphors and Similes. Shakespeare s language - insults and iambic pentameters. Find the missing words. Wordsearch Understanding the play. Describe what is happening, and what happens next, from a page out of the graphic novel. Write a book review. Quiz Drama/Art. Conduct a trial for Lady Macbeth. Write and perform a sequel. Coloring pages and many more A CD is included that contains the pages in PDF format so that they can be used on any whiteboard or local intranet system."

About the Author

As a parent Karen Wenborn recognizes the need to provide today's Playstation generation with literature in a format that will engage and delight. Already the proud owner of well over 2,000 books, (all of which have been read), there is little that Karen doesn't know about literature from all periods. Jon Haward created the original artwork for Classical Comics' Macbeth graphic novels. Gary Erskine assisted on the Macbeth graphic novels and has inked on The Tempest among other titles. Nigel Dobbyn has previously lettered the Henry V graphic novels and both lettered and colored the Macbeth graphic novels for Classical Comics. Clive Bryant is the founder of Classical Comics and has served as Editor in Chief for the entire series of graphic novels and teaching resources.


The Study Guide is a wonderful resource. Although rather text heavy it has some terrific lesson ideas and the Teachers' "answer" section at the back is a welcome inclusion. Linda Lorenza, Head Of Education The Bell Shakespeare Company, NSW, Australia The "Classical Comics" resources that I have used are invaluable for teaching at all levels. My students have found them enormously helpful in preparing for their exams as they have allowed me to create more inventive and imaginative teaching resources. Dr Marcella McCarthy, Leading Teacher for Gifted and Talented Education The Cherwell School, Oxford, England [the resources] capitalize on the concept of using comics in the classroom to make classics of English literature more accessible. As such they are highly original; I know of no other resource that combines work with a classical text with the more visual approach of a comic. Having said that, the resources are equally valuable if teaching the text from a "normal" book. Dr Kornel Kossuth, Head of English Saint Ronan's School, Kent, England.
