Grade 11 English – College Preparation (ENG3C)

Macbeth Character Sketch
(To be completed after performing Act I)
This assignment is designed for you to work with members of your table group.
1) Select a character by sending a representative from your table group to sign up on the
board – any duplication will be settled by a skill testing question administered to your
table group.
Lady Macbeth
The Witches
2) Based on our exploration of Elizabethan culture and the information provided in Act I of
Macbeth, create an image of the character you have selected on the chart paper
3) Review Act I and select three quotations as follows:
Two quotations said BY the character
One quotation ABOUT or RELATED TO the character
4) Explore and highlight the significance of these quotations as they relate to specific
events within Act I.
5) Each group member will create an “I wonder…, I’m confused about…, this reminds me
of…” chart that both relates to your character and to his/her upcoming role in Act II.
You have one class period to complete this assignment and may choose to work on it after
school or during tutorial tomorrow morning should you require more time.
Table groups will present their sketches to the class tomorrow.

Additional Notes
This activity supports students with ASD in working towards achieving section 1.3 of the
Reading and Literature Studies strand of ENG3C in the following ways:

Minimizes transitions in the class period and highlights clear timelines for completion
Provides an educational focus for social interactions with peers
Maintains the layout of the room - students work in table groups
Ensures student focus and reduces loud noises as teacher circulates through groups
Provides the opportunity for meaningful, relevant discussion to take place in the
immediate area of the student without requiring specific feedback from him/her
6) Models the manner by which students can extract meaning from ideas and details in
texts in a variety of ways
