wondering what kind of video programs, designed specifically for high school
and/orcollege-level students, are currently on the market?

Speaking as a freshman in college, I can honestly say that I don't think high
school and college students need special instructional videos for Shakespeare.
It's delightful and interesting to work with the raw text, and every
Shakespeare movie I've ever seen hasn't lost me, or left me wondering what
Shakespeare meant.  I think it's a misconception that people make that high
school and college age students need aids to Shakespeare.  I have a friend who
teaches the fifth grade who has students memorizing Shakespeare, reading, and
viewing the plays.  High school and college students ought to be very able.

I too am interested in educational videos, so I encourage anyone with
information on the subject to post to this list.  Thank you.
