Happy New Year! I'm about to start Macbeth with my 11th graders in a few weeks, and I was wondering how you all approached teaching plays in general, and Shakespeare in particular. My thought is for us to read the play in class, but I would like to have them doing some outside activities so that they don't think they can just slack off. I just bought the Shakespeare Set Free book for Macbeth, but I'd really appreciate any advice veteran teachers might have for teaching Shakespeare (or any play, really) effectively. Thanks!
