Product Description
Historical Resume Project

"Looking forward to using this with my students. Thank you!"

This is a fantastic project for any unit or person in US History or World History. I typically do this project at the end of the year and have the students pick a historical figure of their choice from the year.

STEP 1: Have students take notes on the 10 slide PPT presentation.

STEP 2: Have students pick a historical figure. I like to stick to 20th century or someone that we have studied that semester.

STEP 3: Have students bring in rough drafts and give some of them the 20 seconds test. The 20 second test is where you look at the resume for 20 seconds and give feedback based on that.

STEP 4: Collect the finished product and have the students do their own resumes for extra credit. Below is the link to my own personal resume as it makes a nice example for the project.


It is really fun and easy as having a resume is a great skill that needs to be talked about and shown in class.

I have included a sample of Obama's resume.
