Performance Task Student Guide

Personal Statement

Writing about oneself can be a doorway to what we know about ourselves, what we care about, what’s on our minds, and what we know has influenced and impacted our lives. 

This student-facing performance task guide, The Personal Statement: A Student Guide, supports learners in crafting a personal statement for a college (or career) application.

While we designed this guide to support learners preparing to apply to college, with some easy tweaks it could be adapted to support learners writing a personal narrative, at almost any age.
