Name: Parrish Learning Zone College Application Workshop / Writing
Date: August 25, 2019
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
**Reoccuring Sunday event - time varies based on class. See times below

You will receive an introduction to the Common Application (used by many schools). You will receive an introduction to the College Board website, which can help in identifying what schools to apply to, and what qualities those schools value. You will write and revise your personal narrative essay, which can be used as the main Common Application essay as well as the personal statement used at schools that do not use the Common Application.

The personal narrative is not your typical English essay and you will learn strategies to write yours so that it is memorable and reflects your unique characteristics. You will complete a rough draft of your essay at home and submit it online for personalized written teacher feedback. This allows for more in-class time devoted to one-on-one writing conferences with the teacher. You will complete the Activities section of your Common Application, which can be developed into a resume – While the essay often highlights one aspect, the extracurricular activities section develops a more complete picture. You will learn how to maximize short activity descriptions to highlight your skills, work, and leadership experience.
