Aim: SWBAT draw conclusions about the relationship of setting to mood in texts.

Teaching point: Good readers notice the setting of the story and how it can impact the mood of a story and of a reader and support their thinking with text evidence.

Mini Lesson:

The setting can include the time and place, of course, but it can also include something called the “___________________________     ___________________________________________” or the common attitudes, beliefs, and practices of the community and/or characters in the story.

Now, in order to figure out how the setting relates to the mood of the story while I read, I’m going to do the following things (post or project these criteria):

1.     Pay attention to _________________________________ details (What are the time, place, “social environment”, and key objects in this story?).

2.     Pay attention to the ____________________________________ of the characters (How are the characters acting/reacting? What are they saying that could indicate their mood?)

3.     Pay attention to my mood (How do these details make me feel?)

4.     Formulate a statement that ________________________________setting to mood in the story.

[1. Social environment; 2. Setting; 3. Mood; 4. Connects ]
