I used this today for a Saturday academy of seventh-graders. I rated thoroughness a B+ only because I had to create a PowerPoint of the elements of the essay, but overall I love this purchase and will be using it each week!

Hi, when I clicked on "download preview," I noticed that the title of the scavenger hunt said "Resume Scavenger Hunt". I thought this was and Essay Scavenger Hunt...if so, I'd really like to buy it.

Please advise so I know if I want to purchase or not.
