Students will learn and practice different types of essays required for high school essays. They will also work on personal statements. Every narrative essay gives the writer a chance to showcase their life experiences and beliefs with readers. A personal statement requires the writer to think critically about their experiences and reflect upon themselves. In this class, the student will learn how to include insights about their abilities and strengths in an essay format that focuses upon personal growth. These essays are particularly important for students applying to institutions of higher learning.
