WORKSHOP – HOW TO WRITE EFFECTIVE ESSAY BY THE RED PEN

WORKSHOP – HOW TO WRITE EFFECTIVE ESSAY BY THE RED PEN

Dear Students,

We have scheduled a workshop on “How to write effective Essay” for all the students of Grade 11 & 12 on Saturday, 16th Sep 2017, timings 1 pm to 3 pm at the school, Venue – Pulse.

This workshop will be useful for students who are planning to study abroad (especially USA) but it is suggested that all students of Grade 11 should attend, in case they want to change their choice of the country later; it will be useful. It is mandatory for all Grade 11 students to attend this workshop as they are still in the process of deciding where they want to study. From Grade 12; the students who are applying to the universities abroad have to attend the workshop (refer to the list given below). The rest of the students (applying in India) either can sit in the Senior Library and work on their TOK presentation or can call their parents/guardian and leave. Parents/guardian have to compulsorily bring the bearer card. Without bearer card being shown students will not be sent back. Then they will have to board 3.15 pm bus route.

Why is College Admission Essay important?

Universities refer to the college admission essay to help them choose an ideal student body. Why? The most common scenario is that the student has scores, grades, and a resume that are, well, average. Maybe above or even at the top of national averages, but amongst the applicant pool, the most technical aspects of the application can seem rather bland. Yet, admissions committees look for the best. And this is why college admissions essays are more important than ever.

A college essay is an opportunity to reveal the best qualities and to show the admission committee what makes them stand out from other applicants. In other words, when all else is equal between competing applicants, a compelling essay can make the difference. A powerful, well-written essay can also tip the balance for a marginal applicant.

The workshop will be led by Ms. Sheetal & Ms. Divija from The Red Pen. 

About The Red Pen:

The Red Pen has about 25 people across four countries. We help applicants who aspire to study abroad, their families as well as high school counselors and faculty that play a role in the international admissions process. The company specializes in providing advice to undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA candidates. The majority of our client base is people of Indian origin who want to study in the US, UK or Canada.

TREASURE HUNT

Danny and Susie were walking to school when Susie noticed something under the bushes.

“What is that?” Susie asked as she pointed to the bush.

“Hmmm, I’m not sure.” Danny reached down to grab it. It was a book, and it looked old. The title was Buried

Treasure. He started looking through the book. It was full of different maps that were supposed to lead to buried treasure. “Wow, this book looks great!”

Susie said, “I want to look too, but we’d better get to school before we’re late.” Danny and Susie anxiously awaited recess, when they would have time to get a better look at the book.

Their friend Fred joined them on the benches at recess time. Susie sat in the middle, holding the book, and turning the pages. Each treasure map had an explanation for where it was found, and what the treasure was supposed to be. The stories were exciting, and Susie, Danny, and Fred let their minds run wild. They wished there was a treasure map in their town for them to explore. What a fun adventure that would be!

They were getting toward the end of the book when a slip of paper fell out.

“Wow, this book must be really old, it’s falling apart!” Fred said.

Danny opened the paper. It had the name of their town on top, and it was a map of their town! There was a marking on the map. The friends looked closer. It looked like the markings on the other maps in the book, and that meant one thing: treasure! The end of the school day couldn’t come fast enough – they wanted to go on their own adventure!

After school, the friends met at Danny’s house. They had talked to their parents and looked at the treasure map with them, and Danny’s parents had agreed to drive them around to try to find the treasure. The friends piled in the car.

“Where to?” Danny’s dad asked. Susie looked at the map. The trail started at the pool in the middle of town, so Susie told that to Danny’s dad. Susie gave the map to Fred to take a turn giving directions. He directed them to turn left by the pool, and head towards the library, then handed the map to Danny. Danny looked at the map, and saw that they were almost there! They turned right at the grocery store and stopped at the park.

“What do you think the treasure is?” asked Fred.

“I don’t know, but I hope it’s good!” said Danny.

When Danny’s dad parked, the friends got out of the car. Now was the hard part, where in the park was the treasure? They started looking around for clues. Finally, Susie yelled out to Danny and Fred, and they came running over.

“I found it! At first, I didn’t think it was the treasure because it’s not

something we can pick up and take with us, but, when you read it, you’ll

see!” Susie said. She pointed to the tree they were wall standing by. On the

trunk, someone had carved a message. It said, “The best treasure is a

good adventure with good friends!” There were other names carved into the

tree.

“Wow, that’s true. It was so fun going on a treasure hunt with you both. Let’s sign our names!” The friends carved their names, and Danny’s dad took a picture of them all with the tree. Even though they didn’t get to keep anything, they agreed that it was a great day.

    “Hmmm, I’m not sure.” Danny reached down to grab it. It was a book, and it looked old. The title was Buried

    Treasure. He started looking through the book. It was full of different maps that were supposed to lead to buried treasure. “Wow, this book looks great!”

    Susie said, “I want to look too, but we’d better get to school before we’re late.” Danny and Susie anxiously awaited recess, when they would have time to get a better look at the book.

    Their friend Fred joined them on the benches at recess time. Susie sat in the middle, holding the book, and turning the pages. Each treasure map had an explanation for where it was found, and what the treasure was supposed to be. The stories were exciting, and Susie, Danny, and Fred let their minds run wild. They wished there was a treasure map in their town for them to explore. What a fun adventure that would be!

    They were getting toward the end of the book when a slip of paper fell out.

    “Wow, this book must be really old, it’s falling apart!” Fred said.

    Danny opened the paper. It had the name of their town on top, and it was a map of their town! There was a marking on the map. The friends looked closer. It looked like the markings on the other maps in the book, and that meant one thing: treasure! The end of the school day couldn’t come fast enough – they wanted to go on their own adventure!

    After school, the friends met at Danny’s house. They had talked to their parents and looked at the treasure map with them, and Danny’s parents had agreed to drive them around to try to find the treasure. The friends piled in the car.

    “Where to?” Danny’s dad asked. Susie looked at the map. The trail started at the pool in the middle of town, so Susie told that to Danny’s dad. Susie gave the map to Fred to take a turn giving directions. He directed them to turn left by the pool, and head towards the library, then handed the map to Danny. Danny looked at the map, and saw that they were almost there! They turned right by the grocery store, and stopped at the park.

    “What do you think the treasure is?” asked Fred.

    “I don’t know, but I hope it’s good!” said Danny.

    When Danny’s dad parked, the friends got out of the car. Now was the hard part, where in the park was the treasure? They started looking around for clues. Finally, Susie yelled out to Danny and Fred, and they came running over.

    “I found it! At first I didn’t think it was the treasure, because it’s not

    something we can pick up and take with us, but, when you read it, you’ll

    see!” Susie said. She pointed to the tree they were wall standing by. On the

    trunk, someone had carved a message. It said, “The best treasure is a

    good adventure with good friends!” There were other names carved into the

    tree.

    “Wow, that’s true. It was so fun going on a treasure hunt with you both. Let’s sign our names!” The friends carved their names, and Danny’s dad took a picture of them all with the tree. Even though they didn’t get to keep anything, they agreed that it was a great day.

    Answer each question:

    1. Describe Susie’s character. What evidence from the text helps you describe her?
    2.  What does “anxiously awaited” mean in the 4th paragraph? How do you know?
