24LC 09 018 - Interrogating Macbeth- The Great Scottish Play

'Interrogating Macbeth- The Great Scottish Play.'

This webinar empowers teachers as they enable students to 'find their voice' while exploring
powerful questions in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It supports teachers in developing students’
critical thinking skills to meet the challenges of the prescribed text in the final state
examination. The webinar will also illustrate scaffolded writing opportunities and these
opportunities will be enriched by the introduction of other short stimulus pieces that will support
students' learning assessed in Leaving Certificate, Higher Level, Paper One.

Teachers who attend the webinar will also receive a copy of the slides.
