  1. Section 3 - Peak: Setting: Mood, and Tone

  2. Lesson Objective: • Today, I will analyzemood and tone (an element of setting) using a PowerPoint, videos, discussion, and a chart worksheet.

  3. Setting: Review • Setting is an element of literature that tells when and where a story takes place. • It is usually inferred from details from the story, such as clothing, speech, and transportation, but sometimes is given to us (the reader) directly.

  4. Setting: Something New! • Setting helps to create a sense of mood and tone in the story.

  5. What is Mood and Tone? • Have you ever heard the words MOOD and TONE before? Where? In what context? • Turn and talk with your elbow partner to answer these questions using academic discourse.

  6. Tone • Tone is how a writer expresses a feeling or attitude towards a subject through word choice. • The writer’s tone guides the reader to the mood.

  7. Mood • Mood is the feeling you: the reader sense from the story: • For example: scary, sad, happy, nostalgic, etc.

  8. How do I remember this?

  9. Categorizing Mood/Tone… • Mood and tone have either positive or negative connotation. Think of it as a continuum… • Mood and tone might be REALLY positive, somewhat positive, REALLY negative, somewhat negative, or somewhere in the middle: Neutral.

  10. A Visual of Mood/Tone:-Watch through once entirely, then again stopping to discuss the questions in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hGhtmzTOEE

  11. Think/Pair/Share… • Have you ever… • Received a text from a friend and thought they were mad at you? • So you call them up and say, “Hey! Why are you upset?” only to hear them say, “What are you talking about? I’m not.” • Why does this happen? Turn and talk!

  12. A Writers Word Choice and Tone… • A writer has to use WORDS to express their feelings about a subject because that is all they have. • Because of this, interpreting tone in writing is more challenging than in speech or movies. • Writers use words to create pictures and sounds in our minds, so we can interpret their tone towards the subject they are writing about. These words are often adjectives, and/or sensory details.

  13. Adjectives that describe Mood/Tone

  14. Watch the adjectives in ACTION… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDUhDV-72S0

  15. Discussion… • Do you see or feel emotions when you read? Why or why not? • Can you picture the setting? Why or why not? • Do you see the character's faces? Why or why not? • When reading, we must apply the visual images on our own when the writer gives us the sensory details in the writing.

  16. Mood/Tone in Film… • Mood and Tone in Film is easier to make inferences about for several reasons. • Tone of voice • Music (tone – low and slow? Fast and high?) • Background (dark? Cloudy? Sunny? Coloful?) • Etc.

  17. Mood/Tone Film Activity: • We are going to watch four clips from various movies. As we watch, you are going to fill out a chart on the mood and tone. • In the first column, describe the scene. What do you hear? What do you see? • In the next two columns, describe the mood and tone.

  18. Clip #1: Cedric is Gone… • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZfgXmQNQw0#aid=P-jo0Jr2IJk

  19. Clip #2: If I only had a brain! • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nauLgZISozs

  20. Clip #3: Tractor Tipping • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm77JG6d99M

  21. Clip #4: This is Our Time… • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NEKzLiXfuc

  22. Think Pair Share after Clips… • What was the tone of Harry’s voice in clip one? • How did Dorothy’s news that she was going to see the wizard affect the Scarecrow’s mood? • How did the tone change when the tractor attacked Mater and Lightening? • What was the tone of the music in The Goonies clip? Did it affect your mood? • How did the different clips affect your mood?

  23. Determining Mood/Tone in Writing • Now that you can determine mood and tone in film, it’s time to take it a step further and see if we can begin to determine mood and tone in writing.

  24. Determine the Writer’s Tone… • What tone does the writer express here? Positive? Negative? Neutral? • What adjectives/sensory details might you use to describe the tone? • How do you know? What is your evidence? • Turn and talk!

  25. Determine the Writer’s Tone… • “The sweet scent of freshly fallen rain on the rich soil tantalized my senses.” • What tone does the writer express here? Positive? Negative? Neutral? • What adjectives might you use to describe the tone? • How do you know? What is your evidence? • Turn and talk!

  26. Positive Tone! • “The sweet scent of freshly fallen rain on the rich soil tantalized my senses.” • The adjectives in blue are POSITIVE which helps us create associations in our mind with POSITIVE things which makes our mood POSITIVE.

  27. Determine the Writer’s Tone… “The stinking mess of rain soaked mud seeped up into my shoes.” • What tone does the writer express here? Positive? Negative? Neutral? • What adjectives might you use to describe the tone? • How do you know? What is your evidence? • Turn and talk!

  28. Negative Tone! • “The stinkingmess of rain soaked mud oozed up into my shoes.” • The words in red are NEGATIVE which helps us create associations in our mind with NEGATIVE things which makes our mood NEGATIVE.

  29. Paragraph Practice: Tone/Mood • Read the passage from Sandra Cisneros’ novel The House on Mango Street to yourself quietly. • Think about words and phrases in the passage that help you to identify the writer’s tone towards her new home.

  30. “But the house on Mango Street is not the way they told it at all. It’s small and red with tight steps in front and windows so small you’d think they were holding their breath. Bricks are crumbling in places, and the front door is so swollen you have to push hard to get in. There is no front yard, only four little elms the city planted by the curb. Out back is a small garage from the car we don’t own yet and a small yard that looks smaller between the two buildings on either side. There are stairs in our house, but they’re ordinary hallway stairs, and the house has only one washroom. Everybody has to share a bedroom – Mama and Papa, Carlos and Kiki, me and Nenny” (Cisneros 4).

  31. Think/Pair/Share: • Turn and talk with your partner about the words/phrases that the author used in the paragraph that lead you to an inference about the authors tone. • Discuss what you felt the tone was. (positive, negative, or neutral) • What are some adjectives you might use to describe the author’s tone?

  32. “But the house on Mango Street is not the way they told it at all. It’s small and red with tight steps in front and windows so smallyou’d think they were holding their breath. Bricks are crumbling in places, and the front door is so swollen you have to push hard to get in. There is no front yard, only four little elms the city planted by the curb. Out back is a small garage from the car we don’t own yet and a small yard that looks smaller between the two buildings on either side. There are stairs in our house, but they’re ordinaryhallway stairs, and the house has only one washroom. Everybody has to share a bedroom – Mama and Papa, Carlos and Kiki, me and Nenny” (Cisneros 4).

  33. Sentence Stem: • Sandra Cisneros felt ____________________ about the house because she described it as “______________________”, and having ___________________________________”, and “______________________”.

  34. Mood and Tone Chart • DIRECTIONS: Fill in the blanks of the chart. • If you are given the quote, state what the character’s tone is and what words express that tone, and what mood does it create within the reader (what do you feel from reading it). • If are given the tone, find a quote within section three of Peak that expresses that tone by quoting the text in proper MLA format, by stating what words reflect that tone, and by what mood it conveys to the reader. • You will work on this individually.

  35. Debrief and Review
