College Essay: Strategies for your College Essays Group C

Description
This workshop focuses on UC and Common Application Essay prompts and the development of a quality essay/Personal Statement draft. The instructor will review the academic transcripts, test scores and student resume in conjunction with the students' intended college and major selections. (The students will need to provide the data by the first small group meeting.) The workshop encompasses:
1. One Large Group Orientation Meeting (2 hours)
2. Two small group cohort meetings: (One hour -group pre-write and critique)
3. Two 45-minute meetings in a One-on-One environment with the instructor to review essay and receive feedback. These will be scheduled with the student over the course of the semester to allow for student writing and feed back.

Orientation and Small Group meetings will take place at Burlingame High School. Room information will be sent via email 5 days before the first class meeting.

One-on-One Sessions Each student will sign up for two 45-minute sessions. The instructor will take input from students on availability and schedule sessions on a flexible basis to work with student conflicts. Sessions will be available from 4:00 to 7:00 pm (and by arrangement if needed) The goal of this workshop is not to produce a final draft of essays. Students will be set on a path of understanding what they need to write about and how to write the essay. They will receive comments and feedback on two essays drafts during the One-on-One sessions. One-on-one sessions will be at the Burlingame Public Library.
