This project requires students to analyze one scene from Macbeth in detail. Based on their own interpretations, students explain how they will set the stage and design costumes. They also analyze literary devices like theme and motif, and are required to annotate the scene with stage directions. This project works very well with more advanced students. I have had them work together in groups, but this could easily be made into a solo project. Students learn so much from this assignment because it's manageable for them to work with one scene, but they analyze many aspects and gain understandings about theater and Shakespeare's language.
