Add a little fun to ANY novel, play, or short story with this easy-to-use worksheet where students take on the identity of a character from your current piece of literature and complete a job application, basing their answers on an analysis of the character’s actions.
This 2-page PDF file includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from my students’ study of Homer’s The Odyssey, detailing Odysseus’ background that qualifies him to work as a middle school physical education teacher. The worksheet, though, is designed to work with ANY piece of literature.
Hope you enjoy this activity, which works with sixth graders through high school seniors.
