Pair-Share…What do you think of when you hear the word “mood?” Where have you heard the word “mood” in your life before?
Key Word: Mood Mood: mood is a literary element that evokes certain feelings in readers through words and descriptions. Mood is also referred to as the atmosphere of a poem, because it creates an emotional situation that surrounds the reader.
