Differentiated worksheets support students of all levels! Students practice and apply their knowledge of tone to varying subjects and mediums. It is perfect to show students that similar subjects can take on a vary different tone given the context.

Tone and Mood Summative Assessment: Offer students voice and choice with 9 different engaging and interesting summative assessment options for demonstrating knowledge of the standard. All rigorous assessment options ask students to think critically and synthesize knowledge gleaned throughout the unit.
I have recently opened my teaching style to include a personalized learning platform of teaching and learning. I have started offering more voice and choice in learning options, as well as assessment options. I have included both a standard set of lesson plans, as well as a personalized learning plan and 9 day outline of teaching, coaching, and assessing options for both models of instruction.
If your students are new to the personalized learning model, I have included a Google Slides/PowerPoint Presentation to introduce and support your learners as you shift in your teaching style.
Google Slides and Google Document links provided as well as Word, PowerPoint, and PDF Documents included.
