“Is this a dagger which I see before me . . .” As part of a study of Macbeth, class members engage in a series of activities that get them up and moving. Individuals practice, then deliver, a line from the Scottish play. The entire class takes turns reading parts of the dagger speech, (Act II, scene i), and groups perform scenes for their peers. Additional enrichment activities are included in the packet.
- The carefully scaffolded lesson includes an overview and rationale for the approach
- Links to scripts for the scenes related to the activity, to videos, and to related websites
- The provided links makes it easy to flip the lesson so that class members may view the videos out of class, saving in-class time for performances and discussions
