    We are just planning for the above unit and wondered what texts and questions people have used, or are planning to use with the lower ability sets?
    We WILL be doing Macbeth because we have the plays/resources already and were thinking about the (tragic) hero question.

  3. We have used Henry V and war poetry, alos looking at what makes a hero. Could you link Macbeth to ballads, such as Charlotte Dymond or similar where the 'hero' gets their come-uppance? There is a good list on the Wikipedia page 'murder_ballad'
