Macbeth plot using Simpsons cartoon strip

Overall rating 4 out of 54.7 (9 ratings)

Last updated 24 June 2014, created 07 December 2009, viewed 15,763

I've adapted this from a powerpoint using freeze frames from 'The Simpson's' version of Macbeth which aired in September (this was kindly provided by another TES user). I laminated this and had students work in pairs. They used this in conjunction with the card sort activity to pla More…ce a card over the frame which contained that particular feature. At the end of the activity students should conclude that this is a tragedy and be able to identify the elements that make it so.
