For what it's worth, there is an area in Leeds (UK) which has a set of
streets called 'The Shakespeares' - it's very much a feature of the
Victorian part of the city that the planners exhausted all the
variations on 'Royal Park Street, Avenue, Crescent, Row etc. etc.' - and
the habit continues - the Shakespeare's are part of a 60s (I think)
housing development.  Nothing can be read into the choice of name....

Your student might consult Jason Rosenblatt, "Aspects of the Incest
Problem in Hamlet," Shakespeare Quarterly 29 (1978): 349-64.

Rosenblatt argues that the Levirate concept (independent of the
practices in all cases) in 16th century England would have construed the
marriage of Claudio and Gertrude as incestuous since Hamlet Sr. did
leave a surviving heir, Prince Hamlet.

My first guess would be solid, liquid and vapour, but what's the fourth?

Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA, a couple of hours west of Boston,
offers a variety of workshops in conjunction with their performances of
Shakespearean and other plays.  They are addressed mainly to actors, not
teachers, but might be of interest.  You can check their web site:
www.shakespeare.org; there is an email link through which you could make
inquiries.

Anyone in the Maryland, D.C., or Northern Virginia area might be
interested to tuning into Maryland Public Television at 8:00 p.m. this
evening. The show - "Maryland State of Mind" - will have a segment on
Shakespeare, featuring Leeds Barroll and myself.
