This is a group project perfect for any type of history class. Students in groups of 2-4 will choose an historical figure that they have studied in class, and then make a resume for that person as if he or she were applying for a job. For instance, Napoleon could apply to be the dictator of Europe. Students will gain great insight about their historical figure by researching all of their "job credentials". It is also a great way to model to students how to write a good cover letter and resume, a skill that not enough people have. This project has the outline for students and also the rubric for the teacher.
