Transcript of TONE AND MOOD

WHY WORDS MATTER DQ: How do author's create tone and mood? You have 7 minutes to copy down the heading for the day AND complete your Do Now. Your Do Now Should be Completed
SILENTLY
INDEPENDENTLY
AND IN THE TIME GIVEN. TUESDAY Denotative V. Connotative Meanings of words We learned that words have a literal dictionary definition, but they also have emotional and cultural meanings as well. Either way you need context to understand what the author means. WEDNESDAY CONTEXT CLUES We learned that even if we don't know the meaning of a word we can use context clues to better understand what the author means. REWORDING SYNONOYMS ANTONYMS DETAILS Look for Commas!!! Although Though But However As Opposed To ... Why the word was used What the relationship is between the word and other words ... Examples TODAY WHY WORDS MATTER How authors INTENTIONALLY use words to create an emotional effect and express their true opinions. Hey, I am sry 4 not being able to make it. R U cool wit it?! It's fine. BUT FIRST AN EXAMPLE... WORDS HAVE POWER ... WE KNOW THAT ... AND AUTHORS KNOW THAT DEFINITION: WORD CHOICE The words an author intentionally chooses to help express their deeper message. EXAMPLE: Martrail's word choice on his Do Now reflects his desire to appear funny to his peers. AN AUTHORS WORD CHOICE HELPS THEM DEVELOP THE TONE MOOD + MOOD The feeling the reader gets when they read a passage OR The general atmosphere of a story EXAMPLE: The mood of the piece was chaotic and rushed, I constantly felt like the characters and storyline would spiral out of control. EXAMPLE The mood of the story was dark and haunting. All the trees were dead, and the characters feared for their lives as they waded in and out of the forbidden swamp. IN YOUR JOURNAL CREATE THE FOLLOWING CHART I NOTICE ... THIS MAKES ME FEEL ... We are going to watch 3 videos to explore the concept of mood. We are going to watch each video twice through. The first time ... WATCH SILENTLY The second time, fill out the graphic organizer you just created thinking about the different elements of the video, and what they make you feel... WATCH ... First I watch it through without doing anything THEN I FILL OUT MY GRAPHIC ORGANIZER THIS MAKES ME FEEL... I NOTICE TONE The author’s attitude towards what they are writing about. EXAMPLE: The author's tone towards Joanni's character is very critical and dismissive. NOW: We are going to practice the concept of Tone Each of you will be given a random card that will tell you a certain attitude. Your job is to write a short story about an imaginary person sitting next to you on the bus. This can be based on reality, or something you make up entirely. You must write using the attitude you have on your card.
Afterwards, your table mates will guess what tone you were using. EXPECTATIONS:
You have 10 minutes and must finish in time
You are working silently
You are working independently
You are in your seat. GOOD READERS PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE WORDS AN AUTHOR CHOOSES AND ASKS THEMSELVES ... WHAT DOES THIS MAKE ME FEEL? (MOOD) AND WHAT DOES THIS REVEAL ABOUT THE AUTHOR'S ATTITUDE? (TONE) WHAT IS JUSTICE?
WHAT IS FREEDOM? SELF REFLECTION GROUP REFLECTION CLASS REFLECTION AUTHOR STUDY SELF REFLECTION You have 10 minutes to silently reflect on the following two questions ...
What is freedom?

100% on task participation. ALL WRITE ROUND ROBIN: 1. Select one person to be your scribe
2. Each group member will have one minute to share their definitions for both justice and freedom.

THIS IS AN ASSESSMENT.

THAT MEANS YOU MUST ...
