This is a brand new, highly graphic, colorful, and custom-created 8-slide PowerPoint presentation with transitions and in-slide animations. This PPT can double as printable step-by-step instructions for students to not only define literary tone and mood, but also to identify positive, negative, and neutral examples of each for a current text they are reading in your classroom! This PPT also culminates in a graphic organizer students may re-create to analyze tone and mood on their own or as a further collaborative activity, with more than one text. The PPT is helpful in meeting the CCSS anchor standards surrounding literary/ELA-specific terms (tone/mood), and may be used with any short story/poem/novel.
With the step-by-step explication and term examples provided along with the in-class partner analysis activity, you will be inviting students to move from their comfort zone into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (application/analysis/evaluation), AND the Common Core Standards for 21st Century Skills of communication, critical thinking, and problem solving along with ELA CCSS anchor standards for reading and language PLUS speaking/listening!
Thank you so much for visiting my store, and enjoy! This will definitely help clarify the distinction between literary tone and mood for your students, at any secondary grade level and beyond, with any piece of literature. Thanks for your business!
