Class Experience

Students will come out of the class with a clearer understanding of the plot, characters and themes of Shakespeare's "Macbeth."  
I have been working with Shakespeare and teenagers for over 2 decades, teaching and directing.  I have found that most teenagers are able to handle the subject matter in Shakespeare just fine (mostly due to the fact that these are "old stories" and far enough removed from their modern lives).  I am sensitive to these things, however and will do my utmost to keep descriptions PG, but this particular show has references to sex, murder and witchcraft which are essential to the plot/characters and cannot be dismissed.
No homework.  But, after class, I do encourage students to do any/all of the following:
1.  Read the play.
2.  Listen to an audio version of the play, while following along.
3.  See a production of the play, live.
4.  Watch a movie version of the play.
I will supply students with a printable overview of "Macbeth."
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
