Grade 9 Macbeth

Comment 0

In studying Shakespeare, it has become increasingly important to not just read the text but to stage it as well.

This year, the Grade 9 students were divided into 5 groups and each group staged their interpretation of each Act of Macbeth. They were also required to create a poster which captures the essence of their selected Act.

The experience allowed the students to revisit the text and to integrate their own understanding of the play. Here lies the classic quality of Shakespeare’s works – that these can be studied from a twenty-first century perspective and still retain the essence of their themes.
