These activities use songs and recut trailers to introduce the ideas of mood and tone in a way that students can understand. Then, they transition from songs/trailers and into writing.
This packet includes a note-taking sheet for students to use during song and trailer activities. There is a list of links to YouTube videos that contain recut trailers. Also, a graphic organizer for students to take notes on mood and tone in writing. Finally, there is a practice sheet for students to identify the mood and tone from three pieces of text.
