BE SURE TO WRITE ONLY ONE INITIAL DISCUSSION POST, TO INCLUDE BOTH THE WRITTEN AND VISUAL TEXTS: DISCUSS BOTH IN ONE POST TO ENSURE FULL CREDIT AND AVOID DEDUCTIONS. DO NOT MAKE 2 SEPARATE POSTS!
For this week’s discussion we will analyze and compare texts (written and visual) with specific focus on theme and tone.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH WORD DOCUMENTS TO THE DISCUSSION FORUMS. TYPE DIRECTLY IN THE TEXT BOX, OR TYPE IN WORD AND THEN COPY/PASTE.
Definition of Tone:
Tone is the attitude of a writer/artist toward a subject. Tone is generally conveyed through the choice of words, or the viewpoint. Written and visual pieces have a central theme or subject matter. The manner in which a writer approaches this theme and subject is the tone. The tone can be formal, informal, serious, comic, sarcastic, sad, or cheerful, or it may be any other existing attitude.
