Setting and mood
  • Setting refers to  both the world in which the
    story takes place and the changing scenery that
    serves as the backdrop for each scene or
    chapter.  Setting includes what the characters
    see, hear, smell, and can touch in their
    environment.  The
    sights might include
  • time of day
  • seasons of the year
  • plants and animals
  • Natural features
  • weather
  • landscape
  • buildings or other structures

Setting and mood
  • The setting of a story affects how we and the
    characters feels about their surroundings.  This
    feeling is called mood.  The setting can make
    things seem pleasant or create an air of
    foreboding that hints that something bad is about
    to happen.

  • For example
  • The description of Radleys house is a good
    example of creating mood. Lets read this
    section together ( page 10 50th edition).
  • What did you feel?
  • Notice that, expect for the town of Maycomb and
    the Radley place, so far Harper Lee has spent a
    lot more words on the description of the people
    and situations than the setting.

Reading chapter six
  • Now we will read aloud chapter six. Turn to page
    67 (50th edition)
  • This chapter might be entitled
  • Jem Loses his Pants..and
    Recovers Them.
  • Purpose for Reading Think about how the setting
    affects how we and the characters feel about
    their surroundings.

Skill practice using chapter six
  • Remember , mood is the feeling the story creates
    in you. To understand it better, think about how
    movies use music to create a feeling of anxiety
    (fast, high-pitched violins), sadness (slow, low
    notes on a solo saxophone), or excitement (loud
    rock band or full orchestra).

Mood practice
  • Re read the Pants section of the chapter on
    page 71. What words or phrases convey the
    feeling, or mood of fear in the passage?

Viewing Pants scene
  • As we view the Pants Scene, how does the movie
    use music or lighting to create the mood?

  • Read chapters 7 and 8 and complete the homework

Exit slip
  • Select one the following phrases. Write a
    paragraph using the setting to establish the
  • Halloween night
  • Spring Break on the beach
  • A trip to the emergency room
