College Application Essay 2-Week Course 

Over the course of two weeks, students will brainstorm, analyze, and draft college entrance essays.  We will start by discussing the overall purpose of the essays: what admissions officers are looking for and hoping to learn about students that the rest of an application does not reveal.  We will also discuss effective writing strategies and techniques to capture and keep their attention.  During the first week, we will brainstorm topics within the following categories: defining moments, influential people, traits and talents.  Students will analyze essay examples, then draft their own.  By the end of the first week, students will have three essay drafts.  During week two, students will choose prompts from the Common App and UC Personal Insights, revise the essays they wrote in week one accordingly, and choose one additional prompt not yet addressed.  By the end of the two-week course, students will have four completed essays.
