English 10R – Mood

7 Oct

Today we discussed mood as a literary technique. We defined mood as the emotional effect the text creates for the audience.

At the beginning of Lord of the Flies, William Golding’s description portrays different moods to introduce readers to the conflicting emotions of the boys’ new experience on the island.

Assignment: Students worked with partners to create a story with a mood. The story had two key elements:
1. characters: Sam and Alex
2. setting: the first day of school.

Students made decisions to portray a specific mood.
