8th Grade End of Year! What a crazy time in middle school! This nifty activity gives them the change of pace that is needed, and, along with being engaging, it also also allows them to practice a life skill of filling out a job application. What better way to end the year than with a unique activity that students can clearly see relevance in completing?
Included in this activity are several formats for students to complete the application for High School- printable and PDF form, three editable response letters from the High School Admissions Team, and samples of a completed letter and application.
This is an easy print and go activity that still allows you to give relevant feedback. Based on the application, you can return a letter to students that either accepts the applicant, places them on probation pending editing, or asks them to meet with you for more help. It lends itself to easy extension activities as well: write a cover letter, create a resume, research the local high school, the sky is the limit!
