This project would be useful for 12th grade econ classes. It gives students a look at what "real life budgeting" will be like someday and includes an optional field trip too! My 12th graders have had a lot of fun completing this project!
This student-centered lesson helps students to get a good grasp of what a good/bad resume looks like. Students will engage in a concept attainment, playing the roles of an HR team sifting through resumes and deciding who they want to hire.
