A fun and engaging lesson on tone and mood that students understand and enjoy!
This lesson includes:
A PowerPoint that includes a mini-lesson and activity
A half-page mini-lesson notes page
A worksheet to complete during the activity
Begin by teaching students in a mini-lesson the major differences between tone and mood while they take notes on a half-sheet that easily can be taped or glued into their notebook.
Then, after practicing with two different clips, students are ready to show what they know!
Watch several video clips from famous horror films as students identify the different tones, moods, and ways the creators show them. Students fill out a worksheet while watching the films.
Use the AVID/Hattie/Best Practice strategy of give one/get one for students who may struggle to completely fill out their worksheet and feel confident in understanding tone, mood, and how creators and authors give us certain feelings with what they do.
Lastly, complete with a knowledge check (also on worksheet) where students take their learning to transform a favorite movie into a horror trailer.
