This is the template that accompanies the vocabulary for Poe's short story, "The Fall of the House of Usher". This assignment asks the students to identify the meanings of the words, recognize their parts of speech, and use the words in a compound sentence. Specifically, a compound sentence with transition words, preceded by a semi-colon and followed by a comma. These transition words are provided with the instructions :)
NOTE: I find that providing an organized way for the students to complete their vocabulary makes the grading of said assignment much easier for me. And anything that cuts down on my grading time, is a plus in my book.
