This editable tutorial covers writing a personal (narrative) essay that can be used for a college application essay and the Common Application Essay, or just for teaching students to write narrative non-fiction essays.
Do your students need help writing their college application essays? This presentation will walk them through the steps of a successful application essay.
Contrary to what students have been taught in the past, writing a successful application essay does NOT follow a five-paragraph essay format.
I use examples of successful essays and walk students through the writing techniques that work.
This presentation is 50 slides, and includes the Common Application writing prompts for 2015-2016.
Editable Powerpoints (.ppt and .pptx)
Editable Keynote (.key) for Mac Users
This is appropriate for both teachers and parents who wish to help students write a successful essay.
