All Boys, All Blogged: February 6, 2013

Focus: When does ambition turn to greed?  What are the consequences of greedy behavior?

1. Warm-up: Row races with verbs

2. Acting out Act 4, scenes 1 and 2

       4.1: Filling in the apparition chart (it will be huge when we read Act 5)

       4.2: Figuring out why we see this scene and why we meet Lady Macduff

3. Viewing scene 3
      Mini lesson on foils:

A foil is a character who serves by contrast to highlight the opposing qualities in another character.  For example, in Harry Potter, Malfoy serves as a foil to Harry Potter; while Malfoy is a bully who manipulates and hurts others, Harry is a hero who selflessly saves and protects others. They both, however, are able to using magic in cunning and powerful ways.

      4.3: How does Macduff serve as a foil to Macbeth?

1. Update your word traces for Act 4.
2. Read your banned book (due at the end of February).
3. Start studying for Friday's verb quiz; also, we will have our next short timed writing on Friday.
