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.

Wow Online College Essay

The Wow Method takes you through the writing process, but let’s be clear about what a college admission essay is in the first place before we talk process. At its core, your essay is a story – a story about you. It’s not about the orphans you met on a summer trip to Ecuador or your favorite novel. It’s not about your Great Aunt Lucy or the time you ran for student government. It’s about how that person, book or experience affected you. Are you different now? Did you learn something meaningful about yourself?
