Reviewer Comments:

This excellent webquest provides a comprehensive unit following a reading or viewing for the book and movie, Speak. The story explores themes of coping in high school, understanding the effects of rape/sexual assault and finding a personal voice. The unit is designed for students to find their own voices through in-class presentation and discussion facilitation, and to produce a 5-7 page creative writing piece in response to a prompt. The students are assigned the roles of director, psychologist, literary analyst and artist to facilitate discussion. Many internet resources are included so students can research, explore and understand the complex issues presented in this story. Rubrics are provided for both the creative writing piece and the class discussion.
