We will examine the difference between mood and tone in writing, and then practice ways to develop MOOD in our own writings. We will do this by first practicing identifying each one, then explaining in our own words the difference between the two. Next we will have a practice worksheet that gives us some guidance for using mood and tone in our writing. Then we will go to our own writing piece and aim to use word choice, emotions, events, reader perception, and descriptions to pump up the MOOD...
Students will learn to write including a specific mood or tone as their writing goal. We will aim to understand and practice word choice, listening for emotion, and reader perception to gain this important skill.
No homework is assigned, although the hope is that the student will transfer this new knowledge to their writing repertoire.
1 file available upon enrollmentpaper and pen or pencil a one page (handwritten or typed) piece of student's own writing highlighter pen *please print out the worksheet provided attached to the class introduction
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment during class, to determine that student is understanding the concepts and practicing/gaining the skill of including mood/tone to his or her writing.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

I try to be flexible in my schedule, so if you do not see a time/day that works for you, please suggest a time and I will accommodate if I am able.
