Make tone relevant and engaging for your secondary ELA students with Watch Your Tone worksheets. Four worksheets help your students to explore and reflect on the development of tone. Students start by identifying the differences between tone and mood. Then, students apply their learning by writing their own examples of a specific tone and mood. Finally, students apply their learning to an analysis of the impact of Edgar Allan Poe's word choice on tone in the poem "A Dream Within a Dream." After examining how the words in Poe's poem contribute to the tone, students reflect on their learning.
Grading is easy with a full answer key and provided rubric. This 100% editable activity can easily be printed or shared through Google Classroom.
