How many kids do you know that have resumes? Well, I now know five since I just helped to create resumes for five of my former students on Career Kids, which is a website that prepares students to take charge of their future.
I’m starting to believe that resume writing is a type of technical writing we need to teach kids to do on their own so they’re knowledgeable about how to create a resume, a cover letter, etc. going-forward.
Here are a few links you might like if you decide to explore this genre of writing in your classroom:
