I have been teaching at the university level for nearly four years and have graded and edited hundreds of papers from college freshmen in those years. Further, I have workshopped college application essays with students for nearly seven years. I hope to help develop writing skills in high school aged children in this class to prevent many of the common errors I see in university application essays!
Students will be expected to participate in homework activities that build on their college essays, including outlines, brainstorming activities, and writing the final essay.
Grades provided upon request. Feedback provided on the learner's essay week-to-week.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Work will be submitted via Google Classroom for easy evaluation and access to feedback.
We will use the annual prompts for the Common App. Students are welcome to bring other prompts for their applications with them.
