In this project for high school English, students write, direct and act out a modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. This project takes students step-by-step through the process of creating the project and subsequent performance. Most students end up creating their own videos, which can be shown in class or posted on the internet. This is alwasy the highlight of the year for students. It is a fun, but rigorous activity that requires a genuine understanding of the play and a great deal of higher-order thinking skills. This unit includes detailed rubrics for assessing both the individual and group elements.
