R.6 Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a visual or written text.

  31. 31. Piclits and Images
  32. 32. • Using the images as the segue, introduce tone (the author’s attitude—stated or implied— toward a subject). The details in the images assist the viewer/audience in understanding how the artist sees the subject. • Tone works the same way in a piece of writing: it is the author’s word choice and details that assist the reader /audience in understanding how the writer sees the subject.
  33. 33. Essential Question: How does an author use diction and detail to communicate tone to the reader? Show students two ‘Got Milk’ ads and ask them to write a journal entry describing the images.
