Andrea Ainsworth, Voice Director with the Abbey Theatre, devised a series of workshops for teachers on Shakespeare's Macbeth.  These videos capture some of the approaches used in the workshops.

The videos cover workshop approaches to three important soliloquies:

"This Supernatural Soliciting..." Act I Scene III
"if it were done..." Act I, Scene VII,
"To be thus..." Act I, Scence VII,

There are also short videos on different aspects of the workshops, including one on reading Shakespeare.  These are available here
