This product is designed to get your students started in the college essay design process. Three tools are offered for pre-writing support:
1) A brag sheet that is designed to highlight personal traits which will eventually become the focus of the college essay (the brag sheet also doubles as preparation for a student's first resume)
2) A brainstorming guide that will help students stay focused on personal traits as well as identify events and snapshot moments that will be necessary to craft an engaging and effectively paced essay
3) A comparative guide that evaluates the functions and methods of narrative and reflective structures
In addition to these tools for students, an instructor's guide is also included to support teachers in their strategic use of these resources.
