This PowerPoint presentation introduces and explains the concepts of voice and tone in writing. The text is clear and carefully explains these concepts which can be confusing for students. Formal and informal voices are discussed, and lists of words that could describe various voices and tones in writing are provided.
The idea of voice and tone in marketing is also introduced to provoke student interest. Questions along the way and a project at the end keep students involved.
In addition, the last two slides provide a student notebook page of fill-in-the blank notes that students can complete while watching the presentation and a page of completed notes that can be given to students or used as a key.
