Analyzing Author’s Craft: Analyzing Hillenbrand’s Language Techniques

Young readers take a look at conditional and subjunctive moods authors use. The Conditional and Subjunctive Mood handout defines the types of mood and gives them examples and practice. They then work with partners to identify conditional and subjunctive sentences in Unbroken and revisit the Things Good Writers Do anchor chart by adding what they learned about mood.
