A580 High School College Application Essay Writing

Available online only

Closed

(Rising 11th and 12th)

Two years ago, Instructor Ms. A was accepted into Harvard, Stanford, UPenn, Columbia, Bown, Dartmouth, Cornell and UChicago. Now she has a passion to help high school students to reach for their dream colleges. She frequently hosts college application writing workshops to help high school students for their college application.

College application essay writing can be an overwhelming experience for many students. The stakes can be high, but it is not always straightforward nor comfortable for students to write about themselves. Many students don’t know the underlying meaning of prompts and have puzzles with where to begin or how to develop a topic or topics to write about. Others know what story they want to tell but don’t know how to organize their narrative. This workshop will help students:

1. understand and analyze Common Application essay prompts
2. brainstorm essay topic(s)
3. select an essay topic and generate a narrative with details and a description
4. explore organizational choices
5. give and receive developmental feedback
