After 20 minutes of reading time to start class, we returned to Tone. I gave students a list of good tone words, and students identified and looked up a few words they did not know. Students watched a clip from Last Week Tonight and attempted to identify John Olliver’s tone, where it shifted, and when he was criticizing others’ tone around the topic of Syrian refugees. Homework: keep reading and annotating part 2 of your independent novel.
