Quality forensics performance material is often difficult to find. SpeechGeek provides high school coaches and competitors with scripts that are not only challenging, but also of strong literary merit. Each issue of SpeechGeek contains five scripts in a variety of events: prose interpretation, poetry interpretation, humorous interpretation, dramatic interpretation, and duo interpretation. SpeechGeek’s interp scripts are written by winning authors who know what it takes to make final rounds at all levels of competition.

In the letter, she expresses her frustration over a classroom experiment in which her son must attempt to learn “what it is like to be a woman.” As she writes, “I just happen to believe that some things in this world are challenging enough without having a grade assigned to them.”
