3 Teacher s Reference Guide Video: 15 minutes Lesson: 35 minutes Learning Objectives At the end of the module, students will be able to: describe the major characters of Macbeth attribute the major quotations of the characters of Macbeth explain the story functions of the characters of Macbeth evaluate character development Materials Video: the witches, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, the Macduffs; 15 minutes Viewing Guide: the Witches, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, the Macduffs; 3 Viewing Questions Worksheet: character actions, quotes, character functions Activity: Character Chart Check Your Knowledge: matching, quotes, short answer; 50 points Background Students should be familiar with the major plot events and characters of Macbeth. Preparation None required. Extension Have the students draw up a chart similar to the one in the Activity and add three new sets of characters: one from another Shakespeare play and two from modern movies of the students choice. Once all the characters are plotted, ask them to decide which characters they like best. Are they the same as the best characters? What were their reasons for liking the characters, other than their actions and emotions? Do they think the chart is too simplistic? How would they make a better chart, or can a graph ever capture a character of a play?

4 Viewing Guide The Three Witches they set up the atmosphere & mood in the opening scene: fair is foul and foul is fair function is to give predictions of the future ~ these predictions cause a chain reaction of emotions in Macbeth ~ they do not cause Macbeth to murder King Duncan they just foresee the murder ~ Macbeth is still responsible for his actions Macbeth hears what he wants to hear (their encouragement, not their warnings) MACBETH: Speak, if you can: what are you? 1ST WITCH: All, hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis! 2ND WITCH: All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor! 3RD WITCH: All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be King hereafter!

I.v Yet here s a spot. Out, damn d spot! out I say! One two why, then tis time to do t. Hell is murky.

What, will these hands ne er be clean? V.i Macbeth ambitious man reflective, intelligent, even sensitive in a way divided between his moral side and his corrupt, ambitious side the poetry of his speech shows the humanity he has, which he loses over the course of the play realizes that, in order to become evil and become king, he can t know his true self he is an empty shell of a man by Act V; all he has left is his resolve to fight to the bitter end He s here in double trust: first, as I am his kinsman and his subject, strong both against the deed; then, as his host, who should against his murderer shut the door, not bear the knife myself......i have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition, which o erleaps itself, and falls on th other I.vii To know my deed, twere best not know myself. The Macduffs Macduff is the Thane of Fife loyal to Scotland and the slain king Duncan he has a good relationship with his family his wife and son are killed by agents of Macbeth returns to Scotland to avenge his family s murder and rid Scotland of Macbeth Macduff functions as Macbeth s antagonist II.ii My way of life is fall n into the sear, the yellow leaf, and that which should accompany old age, as honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have; but in their stead, curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath, which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not. V.iii O nation miserable! With an untitled tyrant bloodysceptered, when shalt thou see thy wholesome days again, since that the truest issue of thy throne by his own interdiction stands accurs d, and does blaspheme his breed?...o my breast, thy hope ends here!

8 Activity What s My Motivation? Despite its reputation as an unlucky play, actors love to perform Macbeth. Why? Because it s filled with great roles! Characters have great lines, swirls of emotion, and enough action to swamp the stage in blood. For our purposes, let s say that actors express themselves in two ways: Action and Emotion. If a character is welldeveloped and well-motivated, there should be lots of action and lots of emotion for the actor to use. Example! Let s say you have a messenger character. He runs across the stage (does a deed 1 point) and breathlessly delivers his news (informs 1 point). His Action score is 2. He delivers his news proudly (pride 1 point) but feels bad (guilt 1 point) that he didn t fight in the battle. His Emotion score is 2. Then the king dismisses him and that s the end of his role. Bye bye! Don t forget to write! Our messenger gets a whopping (2,2). Yeah! What a part! Who wants to play this character? Using our four main characters (Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Macduff, and the Witches) give one point for any actions or emotions they have in one scene of the play. Use your Viewing Guides and look over the characters actions, roles, quotes, and conflicts. Add up the points and plot the characters position on the graph. See how great (or not great) their roles are. ACTIONS POINTS 1. Character attacks or defends 2. Character informs or deceives 3. Character asks or demands 4. Character makes a plan or does a deed 5. (make your own!) EMOTIONS 1. Character shows love or hatred 2. Character shows fear or anticipation 3. Character shows pride or guilt 4. Character shows happiness or sorrow 5. (make your own!)

9 Activity Now what do you think of the characters in Macbeth? Which roles are more interesting to perform? Why?
