Provides a sign-up list with 13 identified speeches, all about the same length (14-20 lines or so), including a choice of several different characters. Students sign up for a speech (no more than three per speech in a class period, which saves teacher sanity!), memorize it, and then perform it for the class. Following the speeches, students will paraphrase and explain the speech in terms of character point of view, context, literary devices, etc. A grading rubric is included.
