Please note that your revision will not be accepted unless you follow the policy below:

1. You must highlight all changes on the new draft in TWO colors: One color for all grammatical/mechanical changes (the marks I made in orange), and one color for all content changes (the comments I made in black).

2. You must attach the new draft to the original draft with my comments and the rubric.

3. You must type a brief explanation (3-6 sentences) of how your revisions specifically improved your essay.

2. Recapping Act 1
    a. On a plot level, scene 1 is about...; on a deeper level, scene 1 is about...(do this for each scene)
    b. Performing a double-reading of Macbeth's soliloquy at the end of Act 1
    c. Viewing the film version of Act 1; what are TWO symbolic choices made by the director, and what do  
    they signify?
