One thing that you might do, as it focuses on the possibilities inherent 
in a play, is to show the St. Crispin's Day speech from Olivier's and 
Branagh's films and have the students discuss the similarities and 
differences. Then, to further push the point that the choices actors and 
directors make create meanings beyond, parallel, or against the literal 
meaning of the words, show the brief scene from the movie Renaissance 
Man in which one of the trainee soldiers recites part of the speech.

How could you not include a discussion of Shakespeare's very right-wing 
views on the monarchy, justification for war, and governmental 
responsibility? Also his more liberal, perhaps, view on women's rights, 
vis a vis the contrast of women in monarchical successions in France and 
England.

Jack Heller asks: "What do you teach when you teach HENRY V in a survey 
of Shakespeare's plays?"

ANSWER: The bloody self-serving sanctimony of elites, both rulers and 
wannabees, then and now.
