This resource provides the directions for students to do a creative cover letter, allowing the students to create their own background for a job they would want someday. I have had applicants from veterinarians to fashion designers to volleyball coaches. These are always a lot of fun to read and it provides a great start to helping students learn to write persuasively. Additionally, this helps students begin thinking about what skills and education they will need for their ideal future job, along with practice in standing out and presentation skills.
This resource is also available in the bonus section of my book, "Basic Sentences to Essays: A Quick & Easy Step-By-Step Guide to Teach Students to Write Well" which is here in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It is an exceptional resource compiling my clear, unique, and effective practices at helping students, even at the lowest levels of writing, quickly learn to write at proficient and advanced levels. I recommend taking a look at this resource. I have worked with many ELLs and students below grade level, even those at higher grade levels who were really behind. My strategies and methods caught these students up swiftly, and I have had outstanding state test results at under-performing schools.

I have worked very hard to develop these unique strategies that will save teachers a lot of time and effort and greatly benefit your students, plus the profits I make from TPT are helping me start my own school for under-served students in Los Angeles: Generations Legacy.
