In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the play by acts and scenes and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every section, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: Macbeth is the classic tale of a husband and wife's ambition and their eventual downfall. On their way home from a battle, Macbeth and Banquo are told of their destiny by three witches. Banquo is told he will father a line of kings, while Macbeth is told he will be crowned King. After informing his wife of the witches' prophecy, Lady Macbeth helps to put events into motion that will put Macbeth on the throne. While trying to keep their fate intact, the pair are met with many challenges that all seem to hold true to the witches' prophecy. Macbeth is thrown into a series of murderous plots, while his wife's ambition pulls her over the edge. Murder, greed, and the supernatural propel the story forward to an exciting conclusion. Macbeth is a classic of William Shakespeare's tragedies. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.
