Product Description
Take your students’ personal narrative writing skills to the next level with this authentic essay writing project, perfect for college admissions application personal statements and scholarship essay contests. Everything you need to confidently guide your students’ story telling form mediocre to moving.

Cultivating great writing skills isn’t hard. You just need highly scaffolded, step-by-step directions and models. Let's make this year a great year of writing!


************************************

Greatness is taking reflecting on the single moments in life that have truly altered one’s course of path.

Knowing exactly from where one has come. Giving deference to those moments of fear, of bravery, of challenge, or self-realization. Growing consciously stronger and more focused out of those experiences. Articulating a plan of engagement, of participation in the world as a better person as a result. Those are the people a college or scholarship committee eagerly wants to find and pay real money. And they’re sitting in your desks, needing you to help them connect those dots between their history, their present, and their future.

Challenge your students to be part of the great story-telling American tradition that is the personal statement. There is nothing to dread or fear with this complete, yet no-nonsense print-and-go, very-low-prep writing unit.

Everything you need is included for you to inspire, guide, and cultivate that moving story from each of your students. From day one to day submission.

Included in this project package:
- Project Steps sheet- takes students from brainstorming to submitting in 6 scaffolded steps
- 7 Free Write sheets- gets students going with different prompts to encourage their budding ideas
- Essay Plan sheet- solidifies their ideas to prepare for a teacher conference, prior to beginning the writing stage
- Outline sheet- helps students start strong with a basic organization framework
- Overview sheet- offers action-driven directions to each part of the Personal Statement Essay
- Annotated Sample Essay sheet- provides an example of a complete Personal statement Essay
- Peer / Self Edit sheet- helps to catch any aspects that need improvement
- Reflection & Rubrics sheets (CCSS aligned and generic)- gives clear expectations for fast scoring (also comes in an editable Word Doc for your customization!)
- BONUS PowerPoint: 12 slides of links to online video and written tutorials, more examples of successful essays, and student direction slides
