R&W: College Essay Unit Wrapped up

We spent the hour looking at another sample college essay/personal narrative in order to discuss any questions or ideas we still had lingering before moving out of this unit. Afterwards, we used this handout to record our thoughts on the 1988 film “How I Got Into College.” We will continue watching tomorrow.

Remember, the rolling deadline for the college essay begins Friday and ends Monday. I distributed this rubric that I will be using to grade your essays. It will be submitted with your final draft, rough drafts, and peer editing sheets on either day you choose.
