Part of Lesson Plan: Resume Writing for High School Students
Activity Overview / Details
Hand each student a copy of the "Bad Example" resume for "Debi Greer". Without giving out too much information, ask them to study the resume carefully.
What impression do you get from this person? What judgements have you made about her already? You haven't ever met her, would you hire her?
(Answers will vary but might include: she can't spell, she doesn't have a lot of skills, etc...)
Generate a discussion about how students have already made an impression about her without having met her at all.
