Description

This single-sided handout provides students with an explanation of how tone differs from mood with ideas of what to look for in a text and an explanation of each based on To Kill a Mockingbird. Even if your students have not read this book, this resource is still useful as enough context is provided to understand the concepts. It also discusses how tone (the author's attitude) can be distinguished from tone of voice (the emotional feelings in the moment when a character or person is speaking).
