Reviewer Comments:

This rich, 5 part resource is a fabulous resource for teaching Shakespeare’’ Macbeth. The first “child” of this resource is from Shmoop- open source study guides and teaching resources for literature, US history and poetry. It includes an overview and study questions. The Shmoop guide provides a summary of the play, Macbeth; access to analyses of themes and quotes; and a series of big picture study questions. Schmoop also offers access to literary analysis, photos, quizzes, links to audio and video versions of the play, trivia, and guidance in essay writing. The second “child” is an e-Text from Project Gutenberg. The third part of this resource is a detailed lesson on Setting the Mood of Macbeth in Act I Scene i. The last two parts of this resource are external links to the complete works of Shakespeare and complete full course lesson plans through the Folger Shakespeare Library.
