When asked to write personal essays, high school students often complain that they don’t know what to write about because nothing exciting has happened to them yet. They couldn’t be more wrong. This class will help students to identify the scope and subject matter of a good personal essay—and then to practice the art of revealing one’s personality by writing with energy and conviction about something that one cares about deeply. This class is especially suitable for rising high school juniors and seniors, as the work produced may form the basis for college application essays later.
