Why Write? Reimagining High School and College Essays

Essay writing is often a struggle for many students, with the transition from high school to college-level expectations proving to be one of the most academically challenging shifts. Expectations for high school papers – whether the five-paragraph “theme” or the three-point AP model – do not, typically, meet traditional standards for college writing. This year’s annual conference provides teachers and professors with an opportunity to reconsider how the modes of writing that students learn in high school can be utilized in college.
