why understanding

is important.

of a piece of literature.
Learning Goals:
Mood Exercise
Write detailed, bullet-pointed descriptive phrases or words describing each of the pictures below. Then, write two words that describe the mood of each picture based on your descriptions.
Tone Exercise
Match each scenario to the response that best communicates the attitude of the speaker in the given situation.
*Someone had slipped the ticket under my windshield wiper like a blade slipped under a rib.

*I got another &*%@# ticket!

*Another week goes by, another parking ticket stuck to the car—what else is new?

*Some bored cop tagged me with another ticket.

*A citation for violation of parking regulations had been affixed to my car.
*You know that the spot where you parked has a time limit of two hours, but you are having so much fun at your best friend's new apartment that you decide to stay a bit longer. What harm could an extra thirty minutes be? As you are walking back to your car, you notice a ticket hanging off of your windshield. Don't the cops have more important things to do than giving me a parking ticket? Tone:

*You just walked out of a Shakespeare audition, feeling pretty confident about your performance, Finally, life seems to be looking up. You can finally make a rent payment on time and have a steady income once the play starts. A smile spreads across your face--until you see the dreadful parking ticket under your windshield. The pain starts welling up in your cheeks, then your eyes, and drips down as tears down your face. Tone:

*As a respected science professor busy unlocking the secrets of the universe, you tend to think quite highly of yourself, and you believe that everyone else should hold themselves to a high standard. Speaking accurately and eloquently is of the utmost importance, because it allows for the most effective communication. Upon returning to your car after hours of grading, you realize that you absentmindedly parked in a handicapped spot. A bit more attention to detail might be required in the future.... Tone:

*Today has not been your day. You slept through your alarm--forced to race your child through rush-hour traffic to pre-school, and you were yelled at by your brother for leaving the bathroom door open. One more annoyance today and you just might just snap. NO! A PARKING TICKET ON THE WINDSHIELD! Tone:

*You can't seem to get ahead. If the car isn't breaking down, it's the house, or a family member has the flu, and money never stays in your wallet. You've given up on having anything good happen to you ever again, and are tired of your mundane, repetitive life. Oh look, a parking ticket..... Tone:

"What are you Waiting For?"
"What Are You Waiting For?"

What are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting on a lightening strike
Are you waiting for the perfect night
Are you waiting 'til the time is right?
What are you waiting for?
Don't you wanna learn to deal with fear?
Don't you wanna take the wheel and steer?
Don't you wait another minute here?
What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don't you be afraid if you fall
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for the right excuse?
Are you waiting for a sign to choose
While you're waiting it's the time you lose
What are you waiting for?
Don't you wanna spread your wings and fly?
Don't you really wanna live your life?
Don't you wanna love before you die?
What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don't you be afraid if you fall
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?

[2x]
Tell me what you're waiting for?
Show me what you're aiming for?
What you gonna save it for?
So what you really waiting for?

Everybody's gonna make mistakes
But everybody's got a choice to make
Everybody needs a leap of faith
When are you taking yours?

What are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don't you be afraid if you fall
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
What are you, what are you waiting for?
Believe in every dream that you got
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You're only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?

What are you, what are you?
What are you, what are you waiting for?
What are you, what are you?
What are you, what are you waiting for?

It's really over, you made your stand
You got me crying, as was your plan
But when my loneliness is through, I'm gonna find another you

You take your sweaters
You take your time
You might have your reasons but you will never have my rhymes
I'm gonna sing my way away from blue
I'm gonna find another you

When I was your lover
No one else would do
If I'm forced to find another, I hope she looks like you
Yeah and she's nicer too

So go on baby
Make your little get away
My pride will keep me company
And you just gave yours all away
Now I'm gonna dress myself for two
Once for me and once for someone new
I'm gonna do somethings you wouldn't let me do
Oh I'm gonna find another you
