I created this set of character trait posters and related activities because I wanted a more consistent focus on vocabulary throughout the school year. With an increased focus on textual evidence in our curriculum and in the Common Core, character traits and explanations seemed like a great fit!
I teach three sections of general 7th grade English on my own and two sections of co-taught 7th grade English with a special education teacher; 50% of the students in those two classes are on an IEP, so I am always thinking of ways to differentiate to meet the needs of our range of students. I included several variations of the activities in this set so it will work with a range of student needs: supported, guided, or independent.
I have twenty five of these up in my room right now and am test running the activities this school year. So far, so good! Feel free to contact me if you use the set and have further ideas for activities, suggestions for word replacements, etc. I am continually revising my work to make it the most relevant and efficient it can be.
Thanks for browsing!
