This product includes brief assignment instruction, a sample student cover letter, and a rubric for grading the project. The assignment instructions provide three different jobs students can choose from to apply to and a list of required elements for the cover letter.
I like to have students write a cover letter for a job they could currently obtain so that they could tweak the cover letter for a job they may really want to apply for. The assignment instructions are in written in Microsoft PowerPoint so you can easily change the jobs for your area.
This is a great project to help students connect course concepts to the real-world. Cover letters are a vital skill that can help students succeed after graduation.
For a checklist to help teach the cover letter check out the link: http://www.memphis.edu/careerservices/pdfs/cover_letter_checklist_2016.pdf
