Sample Note to Provide to Recommending Teachers
- I submitted a rough draft of a research paper analyzing the major themes contained within “The Great Gatsby.” You tore the draft apart, and I spent substantial time reworking the final essay based on your recommendations. Ultimately I received an A- on the paper, which I believe was one of the highest grades in the class.
- In the group project where we researched and presented on an issue for the recent presidential campaign, I took on a leadership role in my group to ensure that all our work was completed on-time and at a high level of quality. You asked us to rate each of our teammates, and the marks that I received were very positive (average of 9/10).
- I volunteered to lead the class discussion on John Donne's "The Flea" which turned into a vigorous debate over the meaning of the poem.
- I served as a volunteer tutor in your class, working with several students after school to help them edit their papers.
