Most of you are keeping on, keeping on with your study of Macbeth! I am extremely proud of you who have been in contact and sending in your daily assignments! This will work, and our communication with each other is key! Just remember, I am only a text (remind 101) or an email away. 🙂
Some important reminders:
IMPORTANT: If you were absent on Friday, 3/13, please sign up for Remind 101. Directions below:
2nd period: Text @mso2ndp to 81010

RESEARCH – IMPORTANT: If you were absent on Friday, 3/13, I still haven’t heard from some of you about your secondary source/quote cards. You need these to continue to work on your research paper which is due on Friday, 4/3. Please contact me, and I will text a picture of your secondary sources and quote cards to you. Remember, your research paper is due on Friday, 4/3. Please contact me so that I can send pics of your secondary sources and quote cards ASAP. You are still responsible for writing your research paper. See the link below before you start writing, and email me with ANY questions:
We will finish The Tragedy of Macbeth this week, and your assessment will be posted for Friday, 3/27. Each class will have a different series of discussion questions to answer. You may use your study guide, and your notes from my “consider questions” which have been posted each day. If you haven’t responded to those in your notes, go back through the blog and make sure you have answers for my daily “consider questions.” Contact me if you have further questions. 🙂

To view The Tragedy of Macbeth videos – copy and paste this link into your browser:
- Finish reading Act 4 – discussion between Macduff who has gone to England to persuade Malcolm to return to Scotland and take the throne from Macbeth. Remember: Malcolm was named the true heir to the throne by his father, King Duncan. Remember: Things are not always what they seem….fair is foul, and foul is fair!!
- View the videos for today’s reading and compare/contrast the different versions taking notes (please note: there are not videos of EVERY scene, just the most important ones.)
- Today, submit study guide answers for the last three questions of Act 4 – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Consider: What did the witches’ predictions in Act 4, scene 1 mean? Don’t think literally; how could they come to pass? How do you think that they will be fulfilled? Remember: Hecate wanted to raise spirits to keep Macbeth confident that he is invincible because of his “blind ambition” and excessive pride, “hubris.” How far he is willing to go to remain King? Don’t forget: His tragic flaw is his “blind ambition.” We talked about this. Keep the notes you are taking to compare/contrast videos with these daily questions. You do not have to submit them to me now. These will be notes you may use on the “test” / Summative Assessment for The Tragedy of Macbeth.
Keep up the good work! We got this! 🙂
Miss and love you all!
