Product Description

In Speak, Mr. Freeman assigns his art class with quite the challenging project. Students “choose their fate” and have to make an everyday, ordinary object come to life. Mel seems to struggle with this concept, and it isn’t until she is open and honest with herself that her tree truly comes to life.

You will be doing the same for the final project for this novel. Today, you will choose your fate, and make an every day object hold a deeper and organic meaning. While Mel and her classmates are limited to art, you are not. Feel free to write, sing, draw, sculpt, dance, play, photograph, tape, etc.

I am not looking for Monet-quality work… I am looking to see deeper inside you. Truly devote yourself to this project. This is meant to be an expansion of your mind and creativity, not your grade.

*Bonus* Charades!--Playing charades is a fun way to introduce Speak. In this activity, the tasks progress in difficulty as the game continues, so students are able to recognize and empathize with Mel.
