One of the most difficult literary devices to recognize as well as convey is tone. Helping students to identify tone in literature can be daunting, and helping students create the appropriate tone in their own original writing can also be a challenge! Help students master the art of recognizing tone, and using appropriate tone in their writing - while having a blast! - with this helpful handout and fun two-page practice activity.
In the activity, students are asked to evaluate example sentences, rate their formality (based on a "Tone Scale" given in the lesson), indicate which level of formality the writing should be, and then rewrite the sentences based upon the appropriate tone. Perfect for Reading and Writing workshops, centers, and whole-class or small group instruction! Answer key included.
Includes both PRINTABLE and DIGITAL VERSIONS for Distance Learning and In-Person Classrooms.
