practice identifying tone
Practice identifying tone
  • Read the passage
  • Identify the author
  • Identify the narrator.
  • Identify the subject of the passage (what is being talked about).
  • Identify the narrator’s attitude towards the subject. This will give you the tone.

Turn to page 82 in your course packs.

tone challenge
Tone Challenge
  • In groups of three you will read a selection of passages. While reading, highlight or underline the words which seem important to you and to the meaning of the passage.
  • Consider the highlighted words to decide which tone or tones these words might suggest. Use your tone sheet.
  • Next to or under each passage write a sentence or two that explains your selection(s).
the odyssey by homer
The Odyssey by Homer

"I shall throw you on a black ship and send you to the mainland, to King Echetos, destroyer of all mortal men,

who will cut off your nostrils and ears with a sharp bronze sword; he will tear off your private parts and give them to the dogs to eat raw."

SAMPLE ANSWER: THREATENING--In this excerpt, one of Homer's characters makes dire threats against another. The key to classifying a tone as "threatening" is the possibility or promise of negative action against the subject.
