Product Description
This activity helps students learn the impact of word choice on tone and purpose. It's also great to help them realize that although a piece of writing can be from the same genre or inspired by the same event, the tone and purpose can be very different. Youtube links to two songs inspired by 9/11 as well as links to lyrics for each song are included, as well as teacher notes, 24 total student questions, and suggested answers. An extension activity is also included for teachers with more time to devote to the activity. The music is a great way to get kids to think about tone because it engages them immediately. My students are always very active during this activity and we have great discussions!
