Goals: To use multiple interpretations of a text to help understand its main conflicts and themes
Opener: So, we know that Macbeth is a play in which an absolute monarch takes power through violence. However, the “good” king is also an absolute monarch. What do YOU think is the most just and fair system of government, and why? Describe in detail. Use all the vocabulary you know, but if you don’t know the exact terms for things, don’t worry about it. Just describe exactly how you think things should be run.
Handouts in Class: none
Terms and Vocabulary: see notes
Work Assigned and Collected:
