Please look through the Preview to see if this resume and cover letter kit is right for your students and what you plan to instruct. This is a basic starter kit for assisting high school students with their resumes and cover letters.
The idea behind this resume/ cover letter kit is to keep it fairly basic and simple so that students can construct their own resumes to use now and after high school graduation. The cover letter activity focuses on how to personalize a cover letter to a specific employer based on an advertisement.
The templates included are basic and straightforward with details, and a sample of a completed resume and cover letter along with a “Cheat Sheet” of description words and action verbs suitable for resumes. Draft worksheets for both cover letters and resumes are also included so that students can develop their ideas and keywords as they construct their cover letters and resumes.
This resume and cover letter kit has been used successfully with special education students, EFL-ESL-ELD students, and regular education students!
