Life Skills Reading | Writing | Cover Letters | Jobs |
Many students lack the skills needed to write a proper cover letter. Even more are unaware of how much merit a solid cover letter holds in regards to the success of how well their job hunt will go.
I created this download out of a necessity to help teach my students a very important life skill that often gets overlooked in classrooms. Even though this would work for any teenager, I use it in my special education classroom to get resistant writers to start the writing process on a more personal level.
This cover letter activity is strongly centered around the writing process for STUDENTS. I included a framework that is relevant to them (ex: emphasizing a mock job hunt). This makes the activity so much more functional!
The whole activity is scaffolded to support students with creating their own individualized cover letter
. Let's face it - this is no easy task even for adults to do on their own!
Save yourself the headache of creating this yourself and use this download in your vocational themed lessons today!
What is great about this download is that I have included a fully editable cover letter template. All students have to do is change the highlighted text in green with the answers they write down on the included worksheets. At the end of the unit, I love to print a finalized copy of each student's cover letter. We add it to their portfolio's and send a digital copy home as well. Many parents and students have gone on to say how helpful this activity has been long after they have graduated from my classroom.
Don't forget to look at my RESUME writing unit as well!
I pair them both up together so students can be truly ready for job interviews! To buy my RESUME
