Stephen Vincent Benet’s, “By the Waters of Babylon,” offers learners a chance to examine the difference between mood and tone. After a close reading of an excerpt from the short story, the class lists the diction and imagery that builds the sense of foreboding. Individuals use the enclosed graphic organizers to repeat the process with a second excerpt.
- A link to additional pre-AP style learning activities based on Benet’s post-apocalyptic story is included in the richly-detailed plan
