This particular product is the test that I created to accompany the vocabulary unit for Poe's short story, "The Fall of the House of Usher". The students must choose from a list of scenerios and write a brief story using a portion of the words from the unit.
NOTE: This is a great assessment for vocabulary, but let's face it.... It involves a massive amount of grading on the teacher's part. Sometimes, what I do is determine a certain number of words ahead of time that I know I am going to look closely at, and disregard the rest. Tough to do, I know, but sometimes necessary for a life. It also states that this is a possibility in the instructions for the assessment, therefore, the students are aware of the possibility. Obviously, up to you, but wanted to at least make the suggestion as an option.
