Creating a tone in writing

With this T4T tutorial, students communicate the underlying impression or feeling in a piece of writing. They develop an understanding of the importance of recognizing the tone of a piece of writing; identifying the appropriate tone for the purpose and audience; and using techniques to create the intended impression. This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy to everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data charts, student guide and self-assessment rubric).
