Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students will gain knowledge of what the Common App is and how to begin using it to apply for college.  The focus is on the strategy of the essay prompts, not the details of creating an account.
For many years, I've taught writing and communication skills at community college, which includes about a 100 high school students a year.  Much of this has been essay writing, and a lot of our students transfer to four year universities.  My Master's degree is in English with a minor in psychology.
Most of the information will revolve around using the Common App to apply for college.  However, learners do NOT actually need to go to the Common App website before or during the class to benefit from it.  I'll show people the website and talk about using it.  It's linked here for your convenience.
