writing for learning
Writing for Learning

Your Self-Account helps you to:

1. Be better organized

(because you select, think and reflect on your strengths and weaknesses)

2. Plan

(because you decide what to choose and how to achieve your goals)

Writing for Learning

Your Self-Account helps you to:

3. Give people information

(because you supplement the hard data of OLE records)

4. Prepare for a review or an interview from university admission officer, prospective employer or yourself in ten years

(because you make sense of those influential learningexperiences to your development and get a better understanding of yourself)

strategies for writing up your self account


Strategies for writing up your self-account
  • A really demanding and challenging task!
  • Writing skill is one of the challenges but comparatively, a thorough understanding of your interests, personality, traits, skills and aspirations is a more vital for the production of your UNIQUE and IMPRESSIVE piece of work
research research research


Research! Research!Research!
  • Visit your track records in academic and non-academic aspects, including:
  • collection of reports,
  • certificates,
  • portfolio, and
  • Even journals or articles you wrote for some memorable events / critical incidences (e.g. an article you wrote for the school magazine or experience in an inter-school competition).
basic technique of isolating and focusing


Basic technique of Isolating and Focusing
  • Arrange your record in chronological order.
  • Does your record show your achievement, improvement or growth in specific areas?
  • If so, select those materials and evidences that carry this weight of influence.
  • Your self-account is your chance to stand-out. Share with others your accomplishments, valuable experiences, and what you have learnt from difficulties or setbacks.
clear goals and stay reflective


Clear Goals and Stay Reflective
  • A successful self-account always stick to twin objectives: introducing yourself and describing your potential as a secondary education graduate.
  • You can isolate key accomplishments, turning points, and events in your school life which shed light on these central themes.
illustrations of your potential targets or career aspirations


Illustrations of your potential, targets or career aspirations
  • Hobbies
  • Projects you have completed
  • Particular duties and responsibilities
  • Accomplishment
  • Major life events that you believe have changed you
  • Challenges and personal hurdles you have overcome
  • Life events that motivate you to apply for a particular course of education
  • Individuals who influence, prepare, or motivate you to pursue a particular profession
  • Particular traits, work habits, attitudes or sensibilities that you have developed which will insure your success in school or in a profession
have your voices in your story


Have your VOICESin your story
  • You are telling your OWN STORY, with events and people that you find important.
  • You put in your emotions, your feelings – that’s natural!
  • Two most common ways of speaking with your writing which enhance expression of your voice are: OVERCOME ADVERSITY and PERSONAL GROWTH.
a voice that speaks overcome adversity


A Voice that speaks: Overcome Adversity
  • This format emphasizes one’s tenacity, patience, and diligence in dealing with, overcoming, or making peace with unpleasant life-transforming events or characters.
  • Be descriptive and use evidence to back up your ideas / views.
  • Far from placing balms or making excuse, isolate your experience and ability to thrive despite external and / or internal hindrances.
  • Stay positive and no victimization.

I have once overcome an adversity in life ………

a voice that speaks personal growth


A Voice that speaks: personal growth
  • Over the school years, have you found yourself getting more matured, developing goals, getting achievements and showing improvements?
  • The evolution and transformation, backed up by an honest attitude, work best to tell people your CHANGE and GROWTH as a young adult.
  • Try to give a clear, concise and adequately developed description of key events or activities from which you derived personal growth and wisdom.

Here is a short story on how I grow through an

Important experience in school / my family…………

the power of writing


The Power of Writing
  • The writing skills add colours to your self-account.
  • Your introductory paragraph may be the most crucial part of your entire essay. Keep it short, precise but attractive.
  • The main body should consist of events, experiences and activities you have selected for illustration of your experiences and targets, as well as developments over the years.


The Power of Writing

  • Always provide evidence: it is more convincing to write “take the lead of a 50-member voluntary team, we learnt through…..” to show your leadership than just mentioning “I am a good leader.”
  • Be specific and detailed: each paragraph should have a separate theme, and be developed within and throughout the paragraph.
  • The conclusion should not be a repetition of your introduction: be clear, straight-forward, and end with a BANG!
review and revise


Review and Revise
  • Students may spend a lot of effort in writing but frequently overlook the need to review and revise. Analyze your essay line by line and make sure that the general theme is followed through.
  • Some other tips include:

1. Eliminate redundancy

2. Look for consistency

3. Provide evidence rather than a mere conclusive

remark like“I am hard-working”

4. Proofread carefully

5. Invite comments and even criticism from support

partners:your friends, teachers and parents.
