An editable PowerPoint presentation to use when teaching mood.
Use this teaching presentation to teach your students about mood in literature.
What is mood?
In literature, mood is a device authors use to create a certain atmosphere in the text. They do this by selecting specific vocabulary to describe the setting, characters and plot .
Why is mood important?
Mood is how a story makes the reader feel. If the author wants the reader to feel a certain way (happy, sad, nervous, excited, scared), then they have to create this in the text by choosing vocabulary that will evoke these particular emotions.
Exploring mood using text and multimedia
This PowerPoint includes both written texts and video clips for students to analyse for mood. It also includes a link to a worksheet, allowing your students to put their learning into action!
