PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Included in this document is the text from John Steinbeck’s Acceptance Speech for his Nobel Prize in Literature in 1962. You can watch this speech here: http://www.nobelprize.org/mediaplayer/index.php?id=1303

I ask three challenging questions associated with the speech and Of Mice and Men. I then ask students to turn this speech into a found/blackout poem - requiring students to keep the message of his speech the same. (Information on creating found/blackout poems can be found on TPT.)

My 10th grade honors students really enjoy creating found/blackout poems. Requiring that the message remain the same increases the challenge.
