This is a great back-to-school activity (in class activity or first day homework assignment) for 6th grade and up. Students complete a two-page resume which will help you get to know students better, but in a fun and productive way. Listed on the resume application are the following parts to complete: school year goal, personal background, academic experience, identify the type of learner you are, extracurricular activities ad organizations you belong to, references, and additional information.
Completing this resume application, students need to be clear, concise, and accurate with answers and they need to write legible. Great practice for upcoming resumes (first-hand look at what a resume looks like).
Print out on nice paper or hardstock to look official. Meet with students to conference "application." Add to student portfolio when complete.
