My students began working on their resume and cover letter to be connected to the Digital Youth Network. They are reather excitied about the prospect of becoming interns and helping Chicago 6th graders.
In order to help them take things seriously, I asked them to create a resume and a cover letter. It turned out to be a great lesson for them because everyone could use a resume and a cover letter.
I wish I could get more adult mentors to review their product, but without that piece, my students are showing a lot of enthusiasm. I can tell this is going to be a great project.
I am a mother, wife, and English teacher. I moved from Korean when I was 23 without speaking English. Now I teach English. I want to be an Educational-Neuroscientist when I grow up!
