Macbeth: The Teacher's Edition

Macbeth. The Scottish Play. It's one of Shakespeare's most famous works, his shortest tragedy, Lincoln's favorite play by Shakespeare. Taught widely in American high schools, its lines are some of the Bard' s best-known.


Folger educators, all teaching the play in their classrooms, talk about sure-fire ways for successfully introducing students to one of Shakespeare's most popular plays.


Macbeth: The Teacher's Edition

Educators Susan Biondo-Hench, Donna Denize, Michael LoMonico, Frazier O'Leary, Craig Wallace, and Robert Young explore best practices for teaching this play. Using performance-based teaching strategies—at the heart of Folger Education's teaching philosophy—these teachers show how students derive powerful insights from getting up on their feet and performing Shakespeare's text out loud.


Macbeth: The Teacher's Edition  is a project of Folger Education, Robert G. Young, Director, and Folger External Relations, Garland Scott, Head.


Director/Producer/Writer: Tien Pasco, StoryLab Films
Consultants: Richard Paul, Esther Ferington
Sound Design and Mix:  Ott House Audio


Special thanks to the students and teachers who shared their classroom experiences.
