Macbeth Act 5

This work pack is intended to support beginner EAL learners to access Act 5 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth when being studied as a class text. It is intended to be used in conjunction with resource packs on the other four acts of the play, and other EAL Nexus resources on Macbeth.

The aim of the pack is to enable beginner EAL learners to understand  the plot of Macbeth, to become familiar with the main characters and their situation and to start to consider the main themes of the play.

There is a scene-by-scene summary in accessible English, accompanied by flashcards and DARTs activities. Answers to the DARTs activities are also provided so learners can correct their own work where appropriate. This is a highly visual resource with Manga-style illustrations to appeal to young people.
