Class Minutes - Tuesday April 5th

1. Prayer
2. Literary Devices Reading Check: students filled out worksheets on literary devices in Act I scenes i-iv. We checked answers together as a class. (Both worksheet and answers are posted on moodle)
3. Reactions to the witches prophesies:

  • Prophesies: He will be Thane of Cawdor and King
  • Reaction: likes the idea of becoming king. He is especially happy when he becomes Thane of Cawdor because it means the other part of the prediction could come true.
  • Prophesies: He will  not be king, but his son (and descendants) will be
  • Reaction: He is wary because he thinks the wyrd sisters may be witches and therefore evil. He doesn't want to think about the prophesies.
4. Character Foil: Banquo is a character foil for Macbeth. See worksheet and posted answers to the t-chart. Watch the video clip (link posted on moodle)
5. Read scenes v, vi, vii
