- Online - Identify Key Word & Mood Activity
Examine the following passages. First, identify the words and phrases the author used to create the
mood. Then, write one short sentence that identifies the mood.
1. "An animal was coming out of the darkness. It was walking slowly in an odd way, as if it were
walking sideways...It was a big blue tick hound. Around his neck was a rope about three feet long.
One could see that the rope had been gnawed in tow. The frayed end had become entangled in a fairsized dead limb. Dragging the limb was what made the dog look so odd. The blue tick hound was like
the Pritchards, mean and ugly. He was big dog, tall and heavy. His chest was thick and solid. He
came up growling. The hair on his back was standing straight up. He walked stiff-legged around Old
Dan, showing his teeth."
2. "Seeing a movement from Rubin, I thought he was going to get up. With his hands he pushed
himself halfway up. His eye were wide open, staring straight at me. Stopping in his effort of getting
up, still staring at me, his mouth opened as if to say something. Words never came. Instead, a large
red bubble slowly worked its way out his mouth and burst. He fell back to the ground. I knew he was
dead. Scared, not knowing what to do, I called for Rainie. I got no answer. I called his name again
and again. I could get no reply. My voice echoed in the darkness of the silent night. A chill ran over
my body."
3. "I looked. The large black letters read: CHAMPIONSHIP COON HUT TO BE HELD. My eyes popped
open. Again I read the words. Grandpa was chuckling...Grandpa was getting excited. Off came his
glasses and out came the old red handkerchief. He blew his breath on the lens and polished them. He
snorted a time or two, reared back and almost shouted, 'Do with us? Why it has everything to do with
us. All my life I've wanted to go to one of these big coon hunts. Why I've even dreamed about
it. And the opportunity has come. Yes, sire now I can go.' He paused. 'That is, if it's all right with
you.' I was dumbfounded."
