Seniors: Macbeth Act 1 scene 3 to Act 1 scene 5, Is Macbeth in control of his actions

Today we read I.iii to I.v of Macbeth, focusing specifically on how his ambitions to become king change within just a few pages. Then we compared what we know of Lady Macbeth, Macbeth and Banquo’s personalities.

Class ended with students journaling their thoughts on the question of whether or not Macbeth is in control of his life and decisions, or if a higher force is controlling him. Students were asked to use specific lines from the text between I.iii and I.v.
