Subject: 	Teaching Shakespeare to ESL Students?

Greetings.

A student of mine, majoring in Secondary Education/English, is 
researching how one might go about teaching Shakespeare to a classroom 
of students for whom English is a second language. He's particularly 
curious about how one manages the Elizabethan English and Modern English 
pedagogical demands.

I've sent him to read "Shakespeare in the Bush," but I thought his query 
might generate some response from this larger and learned Shakespeare 
community. Any thoughts, suggestions, advice, anecdotes would be 
appreciated.
