  17. 17. “Write on the page, not in your head.”<br />Debbie Merion<br />
  18. 18. Why this Event is So Effective<br />Super-sized support: Parents, teachers and educators share an event to support students.<br />For super-sized anxiety:  College applications are stressful, writing can be as well. (“writer’s block”)<br />Writing style can be mysterious: “We are taught to write about what we know, not who we are.”<br />Students can support other students:  Lessening the need for secrecy, even though the goal of the essay is to be unique.<br />
  19. 19. After the Teaching, the Excitement Begins<br />Powerful mini-coaching session:  After the teaching, students meet individually with adult professionals to brainstorm ideas, share drafts.<br />The early goal: At this tender, early stage of college essay writing, we help students understand and embrace strengths that will interest colleges.  <br />The final goal:  Apply, get accepted, and learn writing skills to be used in college and beyond.<br />
  20. 20. Beyond a High School Essay:<br />The reader has never met you.<br />More about who you are than what you know.<br />Five-paragraph standard format is not required.<br />
  21. 21. “Show Don’t Tell” Example 1<br />I am confident. <br />I smile at people when I pass them in the hallways. <br />
  22. 22. Characteristics of Sought-After Students<br />Growth potential or evidence<br />Enthusiastic (AKA passionate)<br />Talented<br />(shows) Initiative<br />(demonstrated) Leadership<br />Anagram to remember: GET In Lead<br />Growth and leadership in areas of interest<br />
