Justin's College Writing Portfolio

Hi! Welcome to my college writing blog! I am a 16 year old High School Junior currently enrolled in International Christian School. These are some of my favorite pieces that I have written over the past semester and I hope to share my passion for writing with you all! Please take some time and enjoy the brilliantly crafted pieces of writing on this blog.

 Writing God

Semester 1: Create a WordPress blog to showcase your writing from this semester. You must include at least five, preferably 8 or 10, pieces of writing, with a homepage and separate pages for the different types of writing you choose to post. Five of the posts must also include links to rough drafts, brainstorms, or edited proofs with peer feedback about your writing. You must also include your own thoughtful reflections about the writing process that went into the final version that you have published online. Include photos, graphic designs, and creative layout designs that enhance the readers’ experience on your website. Your blog should contain at least five finalized versions of your writing from this semester (not your resume). Post each piece on a separate page of your blog (not straight down the same page), designed and formatted in a professional manner.

(A) Abundance

(B) How I Found Myself

(C) Love

(D) Money and Satisfaction

(E) Nature versus Nurture

(F) One Dimensional

(G) Restaurant Review

(H) The Media as a Weapon

Semester 2: Complete your writer’s blog for the year by adding five original poems and five favorite poems from famous authors, along with the paragraph of analysis for each poem. Also upload three additional pieces of writing from this semester to your blog and then attach your link to the dropbox here on Schoology. Please include artwork or photos with your pieces of writing so that they look professional. Other pieces of writing from this semester include the Merchant of Venice essay and poster, Count of Monte Cristo essay, any number of the quick write samples that you have written into longer pieces, or mini-essays from the Kite Runner.
