Tone

Tone: The mood or feeling an author creates (could be scary, funny, tense…).  This is done through word choice.  Choose words that help create a mood.

Examples:

The Road “As sightless as the eggs of spiders”

Lord of the Flies “The temperature of the lake was warmer than blood”

Student Example:  Notice how a creepy, scary mood is created by comparing the bed to an open coffin, or by the clothes laying around like bodies.
