The Power of Diction

First, read a document that relates factual data regarding a family trip to Costa Rica. Then read the same information in a piece where the author conveys a negative tone; finally, read one where the author establishes a positive tone. After analyzing the author's use of diction, learners are presented with neutral data regarding a fictional family celebration on a Fourth of July that they can convey in positive or negative ways. Excellent active practice with diction and connotation.
