PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

College application essays are very different from other forms of writing done in school, and your students can’t do it alone! Help them increase their odds of admission with this lesson set!

These materials teach students how to BOTH follow the rules AND stand out from their peers enough to leave positive impressions on unfamiliar readers.

Go through the entire writing process:

• The lesson introduces students to what the essays are like, how to organize their application information, and especially how to analyze given prompts to understand both what the admissions people WANT and what the TRAPS are in each prompt.

• After a short review quiz, students are tasked to choose ONE prompt for a college (or the Common App) that they will complete, write a draft, and turn it in to you; use the rubric to fairly assess the essays for your gradebook AND give them practical feedback for revision (before they actually apply to a college).

**Please see the PREVIEW for additional images and information!**

This EDITABLE 32-slide, 8-page download includes:
• PowerPoint lesson
• Guided notes
• Answer key
• Rubric for grading (with CCSS standards)
