Student Choice (Pick Two)

Because students are able to repeat University Prep, the class will vote each semester on two of these four short essays to write. This will hopefully create some additional different experiences for students taking the course more than once. It also gives the class an opportunity to focus on skills that feel most relevant to their future goals.

Please remember that self-plagiarism (resubmitting your own work for another grade) is unacceptable. You should begin each writing assignment from the very beginning.
