I created this handout to get my Honors and AP English seniors thinking about the college essay. Students will need a QR code reader and earbuds to access QR codes that will lead them to several short videos about the college essay as well as approaches to topics from the 2016-2017 Common App. My students choose one of the Common App topics to develop into a college essay that can be tweaked for various different college and scholarship applications.
This handout will be updated for 2017-2018! Enjoy.
