This is a play on a Job Application, asking students to apply for position of Stellar Student. They must create a Resume of skills and a Cover Letter that provides their qualifications for the position.
I use this as a back to school activity so I can learn about the students interests while they are working through the state content standards.
This handout provides a model cover letter and resume for students to follow. Fun and engaging!
