Banquo's Murder

Why do you think that Macbeth is haunted by the ghost of Banquo but not the ghost of Duncan?

If you really knew me...

In an effort to get to know each other, trust each other, and inspire each other a little for the next creative writing piece, I'd like you to take a little risk and post five things that you'd like other people in the class to know about you. The quirkier/more unique and personal, the better. Here are my five:

1. I am a terrible sport and throw a fit when I lose--especially when it comes to board and card games.
2. I have a phobia of people throwing up.
3. I like to watch one rerun of "Scrubs" before going to bed because I find it relaxing.
4. Sometimes I'd rather curl up in bed and read a book than go out and socialize. I would have never admitted this in high school because I used to think that it made me a dork. Now I'm automatically a dork because I'm old and a teacher, so I don't really care.
5. I spent three hours last night taking care of my very sick grandmother, who is currently having hallucinations. It was scary.

Your turn.

Questioning Macbeth

1. Please post at least three strong discussion questions that address characters, symbols, motifs, and/or themes from Act 1. Read others' posts before posting your own to avoid repetition.

2. Select ONE question posted by somebody else to respond to on the blog.

Enjoy, go deep, and remember to type in Microsoft Word first.
