Character Analysis Interactive Bulletin Board with Writing Assignment: Use this 68 page comprehensive interactive bulletin board to study character mood/emotions, character motivation, inference, and textual evidence all year long! This is one of the best natural test preparation resources I've ever used in my own classroom. There are many, varied uses for this, including a daily warm-up activity. You display a mood/emotion and the students contribute possible "causes,", and possible textual "evidence" of the emotion. Then the completed bulletin board serves as a basis for writing activities.
