Product Description
From Electric English...
Tone is everything!!!! If a student misinterprets the tone in a piece of writing, then they will likely misinterpret the entire meaning of the piece. The is a short activity meant to introduce your students to the concepts and ideas behind recognizing tone. How does a writer feel about a particular piece of their work? What is their purpose? What do they want you to feel in response to their words? All of these questions and more are relevant to tone...

This is a brief, introductory activity to get your students thinking about how word choice can determine the tone of a piece. But more importantly, how changing just a few words, can sometimes alter the entire meaning and tone of the work. With this activity, they are asked to fill out a mad lib created from a short excerpt of Ray Bradbury's work, and then consider how their own choices changed the meaning and tone of the piece.... It is a fun, electrifying way to get your students contemplating the feeling and purpose behind a text.

If you have any questions or observations, please feel free to contact me :)
