  • For FIVE of the truths, you will need to explain in two to three sentences why each is a truth using examples from your own high school experiences.

  • For the each of the OTHER five, you will need to explain in two to three sentences why each is a truth and then you will use various pieces of textual evidence from Speak as support for each truth.


Your choice

Your Choice

  • For the final part of the project, you and your group will choose one of the following:

    • Create a piece of art that represents something from the book (a theme, a character, a symbol, a scene, a place … etc.).

      • You can create a photo collage, a sculpture, a painting, a scrapbook …etc. (Check with me if you are unsure.)

      • You must incorporate at least two quotes into the piece.

      • NO PENCIL DRAWINGS!


Your choice con

Your Choice (con.)

OR

  • You will select two characters from the novel to describe. It CANNOT be Melinda.

    • For each character, you will compile a list of five nouns and/or adjectives that relate to the character.

      • These must be insightful word choices. You CANNOT use words such as mad, happy, sad, nice … etc. These are BORING and NONDESCRIPT.

      • For each word, you will write one to two sentences explaining why you chose that word for that character.

      • For each word, you will give a specific quote (with page number) that illustrates the description or describe a specific incident (with page number) that illustrates the description.

      • For each word, you will select a symbolic image to illustrate the word.


Word example

Word Example

Melinda

* Introverted

* It is evident that Melinda is introverted because she keeps to herself and seldom speaks to anyone through most of the novel.

* Melinda’s closet is an example of her being introverted. She finds an abandoned closet and she decides to use it to hide away from the rest of the world. (pages 25-26)
