Our Maintaining Style and Tone lesson plan reviews how style and tone affect meaning and then helps students to maintain style and tone with their writing and speaking. Students are asked to use their creative writing skills to write fake letters to friends using different writing styles and tones for each. They are also asked to write additional sentences based on the tone of example sentences they are given in order to practice matching tone.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to maintain consistency in style and tone when writing and speaking.
