Students love this lesson! This includes a worksheet analyzing tone in original paragraphs, a short writing assignment, and presentation of the student writing to the whole class. Students enjoy being able to assume an attitude in their writing, collaborating with another student, and sharing their writing with the whole class. This lesson pairs well with essays or other reading selections focusing on tone and may also be used with the study of connotations. A previous introduction of tone is assumed although not necessary.
The lesson corresponds to Common Core standard CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.4 which refers to tone. Additional standards are met through students writing with tone in mind and listening and speaking as they present their writing to the class.
Your purchase includes five pages: lesson notes, Analyzing Tone in Writing worksheet, the worksheet key, paragraph instructions, and individual situations for the assignment.
