Want to teach the whole series on job applications, resumes, job interviews, and following up? Then you'd love the "What I Wish I Learned in School": The Complete Series
- (1) Lesson Plan
- (1) Warm-Up that encourages students to think about local businesses and their hiring expectations
- (2) handouts covering two methods of answering this question.
- List of 50+ example "strengths" to help students who do not inherently know what their strengths are
- (1) "Putting it all together" activity with relaxed sentence stems for an actual job interview
NOTE: The real challenge my students have with this question is thinking of their own strengths. This lesson plan has helped them out immensely because it provides them with a list of great strengths to choose from; saving brain time for the teacher and internet time for the students, who before this were spending time googling strengths to use.
The warm-up is especially fun and real-life applicable, especially if you use a business that students are familiar with (I use businesses like Hot Topic, Toys 'R Us, In-n-Out, etc.!)
