PACE: Macbeth & Quack & Pitches

We started Tuesday with an activity using the Quack vocab and refreshing our Macbeth brains.

We broke into groups of two or three, each group was given a couple of Quack words from Unit 1 Part 1 of Quack.  Then the groups were told to create a two to three sentence pitch for movie/TV show/video game based on Macbeth using those words effectively.  The pitches were then posted to the class blogs.

Quiz on QUACK Unit 1 Part 1 on Thursday.

From there, folks had three choices.

One, work with Ms. Campbell on a close reading of Macbeth Act 2.1 and completing the Macbeth organizers.

Two, work with Mr. Ryder on developing ideas for pitches.

Three, work independently on graphic organizers, pitches, studying for QUACK, blogging and more.

We had some productive work in each area including the ideas below.
