For my monologue project, I selected lines from a monologue that shows Macbeth at his most vulnerable from Shakespeare’s play,”Macbeth” I chose to learn Act 5, Scene 5, lines 20-31 as my monologue because it sh
i admire how in detail you got, and how you showed a very good understanding of this scene, and Macbeth overall as a character. i also wrote about how Macbeth is obsessed with death, and having power, overall i completely agree with everything you said.
I like your tone and your pacing because the way you speak says that the character is feeling sad. Macbeth is speaking as if he gave up at night. I admire the way that you described your scene. I like the way that you present Macbeth. One sentence that stands out to me was if it was up to me to stage this scene, I would most likely make the actors playing Macbeth pace back and forth in a castle in order to set the mood of Lady Macbeth “In the scene where this monologue occurs, Macbeth is quite a gloomy character. This is especially true after he kills duncan”. I like the way you described Macbeth.
I loved how in depth your monologue analysis was, especially the lineI might choose to stage him in the bathroom where he is looking at himself in the mirror, because i think that would be perfect for this scene.
I am amazed by your performance of this monologue, because of the accuracy that it portrays, i had never realized how much so most female characters are associated with magic, like you mentioned with the witches.

Dear jackson: I am impressed by your story “the end of the semester”, because you were able to paint a very vivid picture of your experience. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Ms.Williams heels cracking on the floor” I think this is beautiful writing because it shows very good attention to detail. Another sentence that I loved w…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
