This fun activity can be used to help students learn the power of the vivid verb. I have included a list of unusual jobs; students can randomly draw from a hat, or select the job of their choice. Students then write a resume' based on this job--the catch is that they must include ten vivid verbs. This activity can be completed in one period or two. I set aside a computer lab for it as I prefer it typed, but the resume' can also be hand-written. Included in this lesson are a sample resume', student instructions, a rubric, and a job list. This lesson not only helps students learn an important part of speech, but it also allows them to be creative, a truly winning combination!
