This themed product helps us to engage learners who, at this time of year, are easily distracted by the spooky thrills of Halloween. As a result, it has become a fantastic time to teach tone and mood!
Benefits for Student Engagement and Understanding
Within this product you will find a progressive approach to get students
1) develop their understanding of tone and mood through video clips, songs, and short passages
2) moving into a comparison of texts focusing on the keywords to help determine tone and mood,
3) then being a writer and practicing manipulating the reader themselves!
Benefits For Your Instruction
-The teacher slides offer notes on how we effectively used each slide while the student copy has the same slides but do not have the guidance described for the teachers. We use these slides for our mini lesson.
-Answer Key: Some answers are debatable and we push our students to do just that! Lots of deep thinking opportunities are provided but our answer key creates guidelines to help lead deep student discussion.
- We include a Google Doc for teachers to help with how to put these activities on Google Classroom for student use. Our Tech Support page is easy to follow so that this product is easy for you, the teacher, to use!
