Ten Ways Writers Establish Mood—Perfect for Creative or Narrative Writing! (6 pages)

Ten Ways Writers Establish Mood—Perfect for Creative or Narrative Writing! (6 pages)

(0)
This activity shows students how important mood is in writing and provides them with ten methods writers use to establish mood. Besides the old standbys, word choice and sensory details, some of the methods are sentence length, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, and repetition. After reading a definition and examples of each method, students go on to identify the mood of excerpts from Les Miserables (pitiable), A Christmas Carol (elated; delighted), The Tell-Tale Heart (agitated; anxious), and Wuthering Heights (desperate). After identifying the mood of an excerpt, students are asked to locate the text that conveys that mood and then decide which techniques the writer uses to establish that mood. Excellent resource, especially for personal narrative essays and creative writing! NOTE: This product is part of my Looking Good on Paper line, which is based on my 25+ years of teaching writing and developing lesson plans as a writer and editor for educational publishing companies across the U.S. Here are more Looking Good on Paper products—see my store for new additions! * AVOIDING EMPTY SUBJECTS: IT and THERE (5 pages) Students learn when to use and when to avoid starting clauses with IT and THERE and practice using four methods to eliminate them from their writing. Great for strengthening sentences! * POINT OF VIEW IN EXPOSITORY WRITING (17 pages) Students discover the importance of considering which point of view to use in their writing. A valuable writing skill! * FOUR METHODS FOR VARYING SENTENCE BEGINNINGS (22 pages) Students practice adding variety to sentences using appositive, infinitive, prepositional, and participial phrases. Easy to understand and apply to their own writing! * CAPITALIZING TITLES (9 pages) Students use inductive reasoning to discover capitalization rules as they apply to titles. Reinforces the rules so much better than simply presenting a list of them to students! *PERSONAL NARRATIVE ESSAYS Lesson Plan (19 pages) Students are introduced to the parts of a narrative essay: intro paragraph, hook, main idea statement, rising action, climax and falling action. They also discover the importance of mood and dialogue in stories. Includes essay assignment and rubric. Great sample essays! * SIX-STEP PRE-WRITING PROCESS FOR PERSUASIVE ESSAYS (10 pages) This packet provides students with everything they need to prepare for writing a persuasive essay. An excellent resource! * INTRO TO WRITING UNIT DISCUSSION: HOW IS WRITING DIFFERENT FROM SPEAKING?

TESTIMONIALS FOR BOOKMARKS PLUS FROM TEACHERS OF ALL LEVELS! ***My students LOVE these bookmarks. I have one for each of the 11 pieces of literature they read with me during the year. Not only does it keep their place, the bookmarks provide valuable information about each text, as well as helpful vocabulary that could be incorporated into assessments. I actually copy limited numbers of each in color and use as class incentives. My 10th graders LOVE to win contests to upgrade their bookmarks to color (way better than candy as a prize too). I cannot say enough positive things about these bookmarks!—Matthew R.*** ***To say that my students loved these would be an understatement. They referred to them all the time, got really upset if their bookmark got misplaced, and said they were "the best thing you've ever given us..." (they are prone to slight exaggeration...but they were appreciative!)...Highly recommend!***—H.S. Language Arts Teacher ***I purchased these bookmarks for 4 novels after downloading the Holes freebie bookmark. They are wonderful! The students refer to them frequently while reading. Struggling readers feel empowered and participate in text discussion much more often. Definitely worth the price!—Portigo P.*** ***I gave them to the students a couple of days before we started so they could get acquainted with the story. Thank you!***—Nancy M.

I have one for each of the 11 pieces of literature they read with me during the year. Not only does it keep their place, the bookmarks provide valuable information about each text, as well as helpful vocabulary that could be incorporated into assessments… I actually copy limited numbers of each in color and use as class incentives. My 10th graders LOVE to win contests to upgrade their bookmarks to color (way better than candy as a prize too). I cannot say enough positive things about these bookmarks!—Matthew R.*** ***Very handy for students who won't stop to look things up!—Denise S.*** ***To say that my students loved these would be an understatement. They referred to them all the time, got really upset if their bookmark got misplaced, and said they were the best thing I’d ever given them... (they are prone to slight exaggeration...but they were appreciative!)...Highly recommend!—High School Language Arts Teacher*** ***I gave them to the students a couple of days before we started so they could get acquainted with the story.
