Introducing Tone and Mood (Poe Concept #1)

Author: Nichole Carter

While reading short stories and poems written by Edgar Allan Poe we will be looking at 8.R.L.4 & 8.R.L.6 focusing on word choice, tone, connotation, and point of view.

At the end of this tutorial students will:

1. Learn the basic definition of mood and tone

2. Students will apply that knowledge to an activity watching movie clips and taking down notes on the tone of mood of the movie trailers. 

At the end of this video you will understand the difference between tone and mood and apply that knowledge to well know movies.
