Product Description
I teach a College Prep Writing course, and during one of the units students are asked to research a college that they are interested in attending. This unit is liberating to students as they may research a 2-4 year college, apprenticeship, or any branch of the military. I teach in the state of Iowa, so the colleges that I have listed for the unit are state schools. You may tailor the schools toward ones that your students are interested in researching.
There are a total of 5 essays that students write in the unit. Here is an example of one:
Guide to Registration -go to a college’s, that you are interested in attending, website and write a three paragraph response about the courses necessary to complete credit hours for a chosen major. Information to include: (20 points)
Intro-college chosen, number of credits required for major, the major that you have chosen and why. (2-3 sentences)
Body(s)-courses needed to graduate in that major, (math, English, history, science, grade point average, and foreign language.)
Conclusion-your reaction to the above information (2-3 sentences)
