So I've created a College & Career unit that will not only prepare our students for the real world, but is also Common Core aligned. Having an inside track on what employers are looking for is the great secret to this unit! We need to give these students the skills they need to survive, and this is a great way to start.
This unit is aligned with the 11-12th grade standards, but I suppose you could use it with 9th or 10th graders too; most kids do start looking for jobs in 10th grade, why not have a great resume to start?
The unit contains:
-College Research Presentation [Common Core Standard W.11-12.6 and SL.11-12.2]
-College Research Presentation Rubric
-Building an effective resume
-Cover Letter Template
-Activity: Finding errors in a cover letter
-Career Research Project [Common Core Standard RI.11-12.7, SL.11-12.2]
-Rubric for Career Research Project
This unit can be as short as a week or so, or stretched to three or four, depending upon the time you have. I think it'd be great to try to find time to squeeze it in if you can.
