Students read a passage and demonstrate their understanding of Tone and Mood by writing, constructing a poster, and presenting their ideas to the class.
Great text to pull passages from:
"A Hanging" (1931) by George Orwell
“The Masque of the Red Death” By Edgar Allen Poe
"Jazz" (1992) by Toni Morrison
"My Life and Hard Times" (1933)by James Thurber
"Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley
"The Catcher in the Rye" by JD Salinger
"Battle Royale" by Ralph Ellison
"Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley
Or different passages from the text you are reading in class.
Works as formative or summative assessment.
