Use Post-It notes to have students write how they view a character. You can repeat the prompt numerous times through out the text, as students evaluate how the character has changed. This activity worked wonderfully with Macbeth
Your students have just finished reading Macbeth. Now what? Are you looking for a writing activity that involves in-depth analysis? Using evidence from the text to support their analysis, students will then discuss the context of that symbol in relation to the story.
Apple Distinguished Educator Lawrence Reiff modernizes Shakespeare in the high-school classroom with “If Shakespeare Could Tweet.” His lesson helps students understand point of view using apps like iAnnotate and Notability to manipulate original text. Imagine students reducing Hamlet’s “To be, or not to be…” soliloquy to a 140-character tweet! They then move on to using iMovie to create a film, complete with voiceover soundtrack —or they can create a graphic novel using ComicLife.
