This 15 page resource WITH answer key is a highly effective means of teaching tone to advanced students. I use this with honors, AP and college students to build their skills through annotation and how to apply this knowledge to real rhetoric. There are two lengthy exercises. The first is annotation with 10 excerpts from various pieces of literature and non-fiction. The second offers eight close reading passages with application rewrites. Students develop skill and confidence through these activities. Each exercise is extremely versatile - both exercises can be completed through homework, partner work, or assessment. All examples are cited and a detailed answer key is provided.
