William Shakespeare's Macbeth
Welcome! And thank you for visiting my unit plan on William Shakespeare's tragic play Macbeth. Shakespeare has been regarded as perhaps the most influential writer in all of English literature and is still widely renowned and read throughout all levels of academia. My objective throughout this unit is to not only engage young scholars, (specifically, high school seniors and/or English IV students) in an in-depth study of a Shakespearean work, but to also broaden their literary horizons and understanding by making the classical piece applicable to their modern lives.
I am currently a Secondary English Education major at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. During my time of enrollment here, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study abroad in Stirling, Scotland and many of the pictures featured on this site were taken there. This is also where, coincidentally, the play is set. In addition,I am North Carolina Teaching Fellow and member of Phi Mu Fraternity, Gamma Kappa chapter.
