Seniors will work through the process of creating an essay suitable for use on college applications. The goal of the workshop is for students to have a solid draft of their essay done by the end of the workshop. This will allow them to fine-tune and tailor the essay towards individual colleges they are applying to in the fall and winter. Students will: -review examples of well-written personal essays. -brainstorm and work on writing topics. -begin writing their essay in class. -compose a draft for day 2 of the workshop. -peer-review essays with classmates. -receive 1-to-1 feedback from the instructor. Note that the workshop meets as a class two times spaced over three days. Students are expected to work on the essay at home on the day between the first and second classes.
