How do you identify the tone and mood of a text?
We can look at the setting, characters, details, and word choices. How do they describe it? Those details can help us find meaning in the story and feel more connected to the writing
How do you properly write an essay?
There are 3 major stages when writing an essay. 1. Preparation: Pick a topic, do your research, and brainstorm ideas. Write down any idea that comes to your head about things you'd like to include, including key points, examples, and illustrations. Then organize your thoughts and create an essay outline. 2. Writing: There are 3 parts to this section. Set out your argument in the introduction, write more information and provide evidence in the main body, and wrap it up with a conclusion. 3. Revision: Check the content, organization, grammar, spelling, and formatting of your essay.
What's the difference between"present perfect" and "past tense"?
Present perfect is for unfinished actions that started in the past and continue to the present: Example: I've known Julie for ten years (and I still know her) Past tense is for finished actions: Example: I knew Julie for ten years (but then she moved away and we lost touch).
