Are you searching for a step-by-step PowerPoint that can be used to introduce mood and tone to your students in a way that will grab their attention? You've come to the right place! This 51-slide PowerPoint is designed to keep your students engaged and attentive as they read multiple passages and identify the author's tone and/or the reader's mood after reading the passage.

PowerPoints filled with visuals are ideal for teaching new content to students because PowerPoints tend to be highly engaging and concepts can be easily broken down into understandable chunks of information. But let's face it... they are so time-consuming to create! Fortunately, now you have an option of using one that is already complete, kid-tested, and ready to go for you!
