Essay Resume

posted: 11.6.06 by Barclay Barrios

Begin by reviewing the section on resumes in the handbook, noting standard sections such as “heading,” “career objective,” and “education section.” In groups, have the students adapt the resume form to the current reading. For example, students might put the correct bibliographic citation as the “heading,” then summarize the argument of the essay for “career objective,” and so on. The goal is twofold. First, the exercise helps students work with the resume form, and second, it produces a concise understanding of the reading.
