Attention Lincoln Female Students!

 

The non-profit Ignite Worldwide will be bringing a panel of San Francisco women digital arts professionals (i.e.: graphic designers, videographers, digital animators, audio engineers, digital artists) to speak to interested Lincoln female students as a means of inspiring YOU to their professions and increasing the numbers of females in the digital arts professions!  

 

Who should attend?: ANY ALHS Female student in any grade level who is interested in learning about various digital arts professions. (WHY just females for this event? Ignite likes to create a safe space for female students to ask any questions they have about these professions, and since women are underrepresented in these particular career fields, they wish to promote their professions specifically to girls.)

 

What?: Hear a panel discussion of women digital arts professionals AND ask any questions you may have of them. **Free breakfast food served during the event to students in attendance.  

 

When?: Thursday March 1st, 2018 during 4th period (10:10am-11:48am)

 

Where?: the ALHS Library (2nd Floor)

 

**YOU must RSVP by Weds. February 28th by midnight so we can purchase enough food for the event.  You must login to their SFUSD Google Account and then complete this Google Form to RSVP for the event: https://goo.gl/forms/FzY8VPkEWnxCuxgX2

The IGNITE Mission:           

“IGNITE’s mission is to create opportunities to spark girls’ excitement about technology careers and inspire them to new possibilities. IGNITE lights them up. Girls in grades 6-12 from all backgrounds interact with professional women in technology careers during the school day. Girls glimpse themselves as innovators and entrepreneurs through stories of successful women who work and live in their communities.”

Attention Graduating Class of 2018:

 

Please read this message because it will affect how you apply for private universities during 2017-2018.

 

https://www.commonapp.org/whats-appening/application-updates/common-application-announces-2017-2018-essay-prompts

 

We are pleased to share the 2017-2018 Common Application essay prompts with you. The changes you see below reflect the feedback of 108 Common App member colleges and more than 5,000 other Common App constituents, as well as consultation with our advisory committees and Board of Directors. Students represented the single largest share of constituent survey respondents (59%), followed by school counselors (23%), and teachers (11%).

 

Read The Common App Essay Prompts Are Changing 

 

We were gratified to learn that 91% of members and 90% of constituents agree or strongly agree that the current prompts are effective. In addition, the narrative comments we received helped us see areas for improvement in three of the prompts. Working in close consultation with the counselors and admission officers on our advisory committees, we revised these prompts in a way that we believe will help students see expanded opportunities for expressing themselves. Those revisions appear in italics. You will also notice two new prompts. The first asks students to share examples of their intellectual curiosity. The second is a return to inviting students to submit an essay on a topic of their choice, reframed to help students understand that they are welcome to draw inspiration from multiple sources, not just their own creativity.

 

The word limit on the essay will remain at 650.

 

The goal of these revisions is to help all applicants, regardless of background or access to counseling, see themselves and their stories within the prompts. They are designed to invite unencumbered discussions of character and community, identity, and aspiration. To this end, we will be creating new educational resources to help students both understand and approach the opportunities the essay presents for them.

 

2017-2018 Common Application Essay Prompts

1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. [No change]

2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience? [Revised]

3. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome? [Revised]

4. Describe a problem you've solved or a problem you'd like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma - anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution. [No change]

5. Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others. [Revised]

6. Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more? [New]

7. Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you've already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design. [New]
