When you are finished viewing, write a short essay, as you did in Part 1, and describe how you are going to better utilize the resources available to you. Use the suggestions made in the presentation as a starting point for what you write. Again, the essay doesn't need to be long - a couple of paragraphs will do - but it should be thoughtful.

Write your essay in the form below. You may, if you wish, compose the essay in a word processor and then copy it into the form. When you are finished, press the "Send Essay" button. Do not close the window while working on the essay, or you will lose your work.

You will receive a confirmation that the essay was sent and you will receive auto-generated feedback by return email. Only submissions by St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy Recruits will actually be read by the Learning Skills Instructors. We will contact recruits if there are concerns about the submissions. Be sure that your email address is accurate, or we will be unable to respond to you.
