Wondering if it is possible without an ESC.
Only speed, not direction. Unless you use a relay to switch wires to the motor.

Post a link to the shield you have.

Most shields with similar names use very old technology and work only with very small motors.

Post a link to the motor...!
A brushed motor is the simplest, standard motor.
A simple MOSFET (one direction) or H-bridge (reversible) on a PWM output is all you need.

The magic starts with steppers and brushLESS motors.
Experienced responders have a nose for laziness, (they were beginners once)... expecting the poster to contribute to the learning experience.
