PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Shakespeare left few notes about how he imagined his plays would be staged. Whether it’s a film or stage production of Macbeth, directors have many decisions to make about the setting, in addition to how characters should appear and behave. How the supernatural aspects of the Macbeth should be portrayed might be the most difficult problems for a director to solve.

In this activity to be assigned after reading Act IV of Macbeth, students resolve part of this issue by sharing their interpretations about one of the supernatural characters.

Students choose one of the supernatural entities from Act IV (e.g. Hecate, the armed head, etc.) and illustrate how it would be portrayed in a film or movie version of the play. In addition to providing a representative quotation of the entity, students must follow the prompts to write a detailed paragraph justifying their choices for how the entity is represented.

This product includes detailed directions and a template for students to follow.

This activity has always been a student favorite. It provokes creativity without requiring artistic talent, and it makes it clear how a director can use staging to influence the audience's interpretations of Shakespeare's plays.
