Presentation Transcript

  1. Voice • What is it? • How the author feels towards a topic • Angry? Excited? Silly? Confused? Sarcastic? Knowledgeable? Confident? Persuasive? etc. • Why have it? • Writing that has feelings behind the words is more engaging, interesting, compelling and full of life. • The feeling reveals the author’s purpose for writing • What if we don’t have it? • The writing appears lifeless, mechanical, indifferent, distant, uninvolved • The writing is just plain BORING 

  2. Voices for All Types of Writing • Narrative Writing: • Voice: Honest and personal • Intent: The reader is forced to love/hate the characters • Expository Writing: • Voice: confident, knowledgeable and authoritative • Intent: The reader wants to listen to the writer’s opinion and learns from the writer • Persuasive Writing: • Voice: passionate and committed • Intent: The writer sells their point of view to the reader

  3. Creating Voice...equals EMOTIONS! • To create a voice to a writing piece, you must have a specific attitude or feeling about the topic • Therefore, Ms. Spartz will show a collection of pictures that reveal tons of different emotions. • Pop-up once you have a word to match the picture’s emotion

  7. Finding Voice Activity • Break into pairs. • In your pairs, decide on whether you would like to read the “Keeping My Cool” silently or with one person reads aloud • While you reading, mark on your paper by the areas that allow you to “HEAR” the voice of the author. • Hint: Look for specific phrases, words and sentences that show you the feeling/attitude that author has towards the topic.

  9. Identifying Voice

  10. Identifying Voice Activity • The class will break into small groups of about 4 or 5. • Each group will receive a section of The Hunger Games. • Each group will be given about 15 minutes to read through the section, decide on the different voice/voices of the section and label where the voice is revealed. • Identify the person that will share to the class the following: • a summary of your section, • the attitude/voice of your section and where you were able to find it in the section.

  11. Independent Writing Time • Look back to the “Attitude/Topic” worksheet from the first day of our Voice minilessons. • Choose an “attitude” you wish to ponder more deeply. • Within that attitude, choose one or two of your writing topics/create new writing topics for the attitude. • Complete a “quick write” to at least one of the topics.
