This resource focuses on the language techniques tone and mood. The two-page worksheet begins with an information box on tone which explains the technique, gives an example and explains its effect. This is followed by examples and activities to deepen students' understanding of the technique. Tone is then compared with mood and the similarities and differences emphasised. Students examine how the tone and mood of a text can be different.
The PowerPoint is designed to accompany the worksheet and includes elaboration on worksheet activities for classroom instruction, as well as a detailed worked example of a text where the tone and mood are different.
This resource is suitable for a high school audience. The worksheet is included in both Word and pdf formats to ensure no loss of detail.
