    Can't face another film review task - just soooo boring.
    Was idly wondering about a task that would involve writing about Shakespeare on film. A chance to introduce whichever Shakespeare text we'll be studying anyway, and get them familiar with more plays as well!
    Look at the Branagh films of a couple of comedies perhaps? Or just stick with two film versions of the same play?
    Eventual task could be to write for a teachers' magazine, recommending a Shakespeare film to show to a GCSE class!
    Any further thoughts out there?

  3. Really nice idea. The BFI produced a video called 'Macbeth on Film' which compared extracts from three versions and there are plenty of adaptations. Go for it. Might do something similar myself.
