MyTeacherPages: Author's Point of View: Attitude and Tone

Are you looking for a way to help your students identify point of view in passages? Do your students continually struggle with clearly articulating the tone established by an author? Help your students enrich their vocabulary with this useful site. Students will find lists of highly specific terms related to tone, mood, and point of view. Supply your students with resources that will extend their learning so that they are more apt to answer questions about the tone with words like nostalgic, sentimental, moralizing, or cynical. Push your students to use precise word choices and watch their interpretations of authors' approaches and styles soar in the area of comprehension.
