Writing a Resume
« on: March 30, 2017, 01:10:41 PM »
A unit spent on this topic would be best aimed towards ELLs who will soon be entering the workforce. In it, you will want to teach students about the core components of a good resume: contact info, summary, education, and work experience, as well as some optional features based on the job being sought. Time should be devoted to analyzing good/bad example resumes and students creating their own. As a way to inform students of the various resume services provided on campuses/online, the instructor could have his/her students use a resume editing service on campus or online to review their resume. The instructor would look over their revisions and see how the students incorporate them into their final drafts. Also, have the students explain why they chose which revisions to include and which ones to leave out as a way to explore their thinking process/activate metacognition.
