Analyze Author's Use of Tone

A clear distinction between tone and mood (which can trip up grade-level or below-grade-level high school readers) is made here. Together, the class explores tone in student responses to a statement about drug test requirements. Then they apply what you've just practiced to the language in an excerpt from Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. A sensible progression for teens from self-oriented language to interpreting a text.
