Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will develop a clear strategy for choosing the topic for their college entrance essays.  They will gain a clear understanding of audience and purpose.  They will connect to prior knowledge of the writing process to break the essay writing challenge into familiar, manageable steps.
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 that has been essay writing, and many students go on to transfer to four year universities.  My Master's degree is in English with a minor in psychology.
