This complete 12-page student packet will help your seniors write the College Application Essay, or any other essay that requires them to write about themselves. This complete packet comes with a reading on what colleges are looking for; 3 exemplar essays to read; 3 worksheets to help draw out and organize ideas for the story essay; a worksheet to give students a chance to play around with sentence structure and word choice development; a peer review worksheet; and a grading rubric. If the teacher works one-on-one with the students to revise their ideas and streamline the story to the themes, the students can really write some neat stories about themselves. An excellent beginning of the year activity! The document comes in Rich Text Format to work on most versions of Word.
