Getting Students Started with Limited Time

Counselors and English teachers are often called upon to guide students through the college essay writing process. Lacking sufficient time to guide students from beginning to end, they generally focus on one of two things:

  1. Helping students choose topics; or
  2. Reviewing completed essays.

This course focuses on selecting meaningful topics, and provides insight into what colleges are looking for and how professionals can use their limited resources to help their students write application essays that stand out.

Under Course Navigation, you’ll see several topics. Each one includes a webinar and a variety of resources. Watch the videos, then download the articles, tip sheets and writing exercises.

You’ll also see a notepad, which you can click on to take notes at any time.
