Satire and Tone

Satire and tone are difficult concepts for high schoolers to fully comprehend. Luckily, Mark Twain was an expert of satire, and learners still find his work interesting today. Use chapter 13 of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court to illustrate both tone and satire, and how they go hand in hand. Eleventh graders read the chapter and discuss a series of comprehension questions.
