Teaching the concept of tone to students is important yet sometimes difficult. This activity was created using the idea that by manipulating the writing prompts, you can direct the tone your students use in their writing.
"Tone Activity" provides writing scenarios that ask students to write about one event to three different audiences, which sets the stage for a class discussion on the concept of "tone".
There is an accompanying "Tone Discussion" handout for students and teachers to use after the activity is complete. This is a separate, free download.
