Create your own connected text

28 Jun

Year 10 and I have been spending a lot of time exploring sections of Macbeth and then seeing how those ideas are represented differently in select examples of related material.

Inspired by the success of my Year 9 lesson the other day, I gave my Year 10 students the opportunity to create their own related text.  As the moment for comparison was Macbeth’s “Is this a dagger…?” soliloquy, students will need to translate the ideas contained therein into an alternate form.  My suggestions included: confessional blog post, short psychiatric report, series of tweets or Facebook status updates.

Students then had to post their related text to our class Edmodo page.  To demonstrate engagement with the work of others, students then had to select a related text created by another student and use that as part of an integrated paragraph with Macbeth.
