Teaching Macbeth? This assignment is a great alternative to the traditional end of unit "re-write the ending" task. Instead, students are provided a list of play interpretations and are challenged to agree or disagree using evidence from the play. For example, one option is that the success of a staged version of Macbeth would depend on the successful casting of Lady Macbeth, who must be strong yet feminine and loving. All interpretations are the opinions of Douglas Campbell, an actor-director. Could work as a homework assignment, or as an in class writing task.
