PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Developing purposeful tone and mood within writing is a necessary skill for proficient writing and creating your own "voice". To learn this skill, understanding the basics of an author's use of diction (denotation vs connotation), imagery, figurative language, and syntax; within a text is essential. This multi-faceted lesson plan integrates listening skills, reading strategies, and writing skills, as students analyze each of these elements to determine the tone an mood of a variety of texts and work to develop voice and tone within their own writing.
