Macbeth Has Begun!

After learning all about Shakespeare and Elizabethan England and King James, we're FINALLY here!  We are reading Macbeth! My goal was for us to finish Act I today, but you all really wanted some extra SSR time, so spent time on both.  I was pleased at the amount of inflection and emotion that some of you managed to pour into your acting.  In particular, those of you who played King Duncan, Macbeth, and the dying Sergeant were super convincing. 

We almost finished Act I, but still need to read scene vii. We'll complete this next class and have a short test over Act I.
