Goals: To use close-reading and syntax to decode difficult language; to analyze how unusual syntax and literary devices create layers of meaning in a text.
Opener: Write about a theme you have noticed developing in Macbeth. Explain what your theme is, and then explain what details, events, and language in the play so far has led you to the idea that this is a theme (in other words, provide evidence). Remember that themes are meaningful, universal concepts that often teach us or warn us about the world and human nature. Think back to the Lord of the Flies essay and try to make your theme as complex as you did before.
