Abridged Shakespeare scenes, keeping original language and overall plot meaning of Macbeth (two scenes, one for weaker readers). You need to tell them the whole story first (there are various books that have story versions), as the banquet scene doesn't make much sense out of context. My class really enjoyed working on this. We ended the work by watching the animated version of Macbeth, which was a great way to demonstrate the visual/audio impact and use of metaphor.
