Mood & Tone Think: What do people usually mean when they refer to these words?
Applying these terms to poetry • We are going to spend some time discussing and analyzing how tone and mood apply to poetry. • Today’s notes are probably best taken in an app like EduCreations, Paperport Notes, or Notability. • Select the app that you most prefer for drawing and typing.
Add this to your notes • The tone CREATES the mood. This makes it a cause/effect relationship. • The author’s words are meant to have an effect on the reader, which creates the mood. • When you are asked to find the tone and mood, it is possible that you do not feel that particular mood, so it might be helpful to determine the tone FIRST and then find a logical mood that would go with it. • Example: The poem that we read, “maggie and milly and molly and may” has a contenttone because he talks all about four girls who find different things at the beach, but in the end it everyone finds themself. An appropriate mood could be “peaceful” or “calm” because those would be appropriate or logical words to go along with it.
Practice some scenarios • Scenario #1: A teacher comes into class, glaring at all of the students. She does not say a word, she simply waits, and stares. Her look only changes when students make noises. • What adjective would you use to describe her tone (even though she isn’t saying a word, her silence has a tone)? • What adjective would you use to describe the students’ mood? • Scenario #2: Ms. Hoff comes on the announcement and quickly begins talking about how our school has been selected to get one million dollars to remodel the school, including a state of the art pool, an expanded lunchroom and brand new bathrooms that have marble floors and self-cleaning toilets. • What adjective would you use to describe her tone? • What adjective would you use to describe the intended mood of the students listening?
Notes, Part I • Create a T-chart or table that includes this information:: • Then, once you have created this chart, put your iPad FACE DOWN so that you are ready to view the clips.
The clips • We are going to view two clips. As they are playing, please simply watch and listen, making sure to carefully observe what you see and hear. • We will pause after each clip so that you can record your observations in the appropriate column of your chart.
Clip #1 • The first clip will be the “original clip” category. • Clip #1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuWf9fP-A-U • Take a few minutes to jot down some images, sounds, etc. that were representative of the MAJORITY of the clip. • Time to think. In a moment, you are going to see some tone words. What would be the best word to describe the tone of this clip?’ • Once you’ve selected a tone word, what would be an appropriate mood word that would fit with that?
Clip #2 • The second clip will be the “recut clip” category. • Clip #2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T5_0AGdFic • Take a few minutes to jot down some images, sounds, etc. that were representative of the MAJORITY of the clip. • Note: These should be very different from the original clip! • Time to think again.. What would be the best word to describe the toneof this clip?’ • Once you’ve selected a tone word, what would be an appropriate mood word that would fit with that?
