Show your understanding of the power of words by using what you have learned to shape your own interpretations. For this assignment you will comment on different interpretations of Lady Macbeth and provide your own interpretation of setting in Macbeth.
Step 1: Character Interpretation
Earlier in this lesson you read two different interpretations of a scene featuring Lady Macbeth. You were asked to view a stage performance of the same scene in order to answer this question: How does this interpretation compare to the others? Revisit this part of the lesson.
In a response of at least five sentences, comment on the stage interpretation and explain your impression of Lady Macbeth in this scene. Use specific examples from the clip to support your answer. Things to consider: her facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice.
Step 2: Setting Interpretation
Choose one of the provided scenes from Macbeth that you have previously studied in this course and locate or create an image that shows a fitting setting for that scene. In a response of at least five sentences, explain why you chose the image. Use examples from the play and the image to support your reasoning. Include the scene and the image along with your response.
Add your responses for character interpretation and setting interpretation to the Macbeth: The Power of Wordsworksheet.
Your work will be evaluated using the Macbeth: The Power of Words rubric.
