This Tone Word Test goes along with the words in my Teaching Tone Lesson Sequence, Tone Word Wall, Tone Word Bank, Tone Word Sort, and Teaching Tone Activities. Assess student mastery of the definition, connotation, and degree of the words AND their ability to select the best tone word for a given passage. Twenty-five fill-in questions and 5 short passages with multiple choice answers. Students must also justify their answers by finding the words and phrases in the passage that illustrate the tone.
This correlates to Common Core Reading Standard 4: Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.
