Tone VoiceThread
As part of their study of Romeo and Juliet and poetry in English I, students developed a stronger understanding of tone and build a stronger tone vocabulary. Based on a list of tone words provided by their classroom teacher, students worked to identify what tone was evident in each image on the VoiceThread.
http://voicethread.com/share/1253069/ With each comment, students were also required to provide evidence for their selected tone.
In order to differentiate, students were divided into small groups based on their needs and assigned level-appropriate poems to study. After analyzing each poem, the small groups completed a graphic organizer and then created a poster to include all the information from the graphic organizer and to include images found in magazines.
