AP Vocabulary Summative Essay: In-Class Test Grade on October 24 (A) / October 25 (B) Directions: Write a story/essay using 10 of the randomly provided vocabulary words correctly (6 words taken from each list for a total of 18 words). Each word is worth 10 points (5 if you obviously know the definition and 5 if you know how to use it). Make sure the definition of the word is clear through your usage. You will also lose 10 points if your essay isn’t coherent or organized. Underline and number each of your vocabulary words so that I can more easily count how many you have used (see sample below). You may use up to two additional words from this list for extra credit (3 points each). If you choose to use other words for extra credit, circle them.
