To analyse the opening of the play Macbeth

In this lesson, we will look at the text type features of a play - mainly the layout and how this is different to other text types. We will then read aloud the opening of the play and check for meaning of vocabulary. After that, we will picture the setting from reading the opening and draw our own interpretation of the settings. Lastly, we will write a sentence about the opening.
