PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This .zip file includes resources for an entire unit focusing on tone, mood, diction, and syntax in a number of nonfiction texts written by different veterans from six major wars. Included in this file are six separate folders containing between 4 and 6 texts of different genres from six of our country's major wars. These texts come from the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, and the Iraq/Afghanistan War. They consist of letters, songs, poems, journal entries, personal narratives, and excerpts from memoirs. There is a reading log to accompany these texts that asks students to identify mood and tone of each piece, providing textual evidence for this analysis. It also asks them to discuss the interplay of tone, diction, syntax, and format. At the end of the reading log there is an assignment asking students to briefly (2-3 paragraphs) compare/contrast two similar pieces (poem to poem, letter to letter, etc.) from two different wars, specifically exploring tone and diction, citing specific textual evidence. Also included is a compare/contrast worksheet and questions that can accompany the story and film version of "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" (the story is included in the Civil War folder, and the film can be found on YouTube). Finally, a three page document is also included that details a research essay and provides students an outline for said essay. The focus of this research essay are the services provided to veterans by the VA.
