College Essay
Most high school students have received a great deal of training in the writing of academic prose, which typically involves exposition, argument, and analysis; however, a good number of these same students have comparatively little experience writing personal essays, which are distinctly different in purpose, tone, organization, and style. When it comes time to write for college admissions, many students become confused and uncertain about their draft work.
This workshop-style course is designed to help young people write about themselves and their experiences in a way that is both clear and compelling. Below are the primary course objectives. Students will:
Understand the unique nature of the personal essay genre.
Demonstrate appropriate tone, organization, and style.
Recognize what readers in general and admissions officers, in particular, are looking for in personal essays.
Increase sentence-level accuracy, consistency, precision, and balance.
Enjoy improved confidence in personal writing skills.
