Dear students,
Today is your mid-term test. You should summarize a graded reader and write an opinion of it. Write two paragraphs of a minimum of 150 words each. (A paragraph is a block of text, indented on the first line). You should include an APA formatted in-text citation in your summary paragraph, and provide a full APA reference after your opinion.
You should bring your reader to class. You may not use dictionaries, cell phones, or notes during this 70-minute test.

Points:
Summary - 4
In-text citation - 1
Opinion - 4
Reference - 1
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

(I think it's not difficult to earn a good score by honest effort).
