In honor of the final day of this year’s NaNoWriMo (which I vow to complete some year), I thought it would be fun to share this video post from a few months ago. Through some class discussions and explorations of both common and uncommon college application essays, my students came up with several “tips for writing the college essay.” I turned those (and added a few of my own insights) into this video summary for them to continue to use throughout the semester (because what they really came up with was a compass for strong writing in most scenarios). I hope you and/or your students find our work helpful!
