A Crash Course For Young Adults
Gretchen Slinker Jones
FFA Leaders and FFA Job Interview competitors, this is the ultimate resource for writing résumés. YRACC(c) For Young Adults is focused on teaching high school students and early college undergrads the art of résumé writing. It is clearly not just another résumé book. This text is an actual instructional study course developed from the author's three-hour group workshop presentation and more than 20 years of experience writing résumés and teaching résumé writing - an in-depth teaching tool that you will not commonly find in most available résumé writing books.
21st Century high school students graduate from school with a portfolio that virtually always includes a résumé and letters of recommendation. It is disturbing how many of those résumés could be described as pitiful! Résumé writing for high school-aged students presents special challenges that most résumé writing books on the market today do not address.
YRACC(c) is the classroom instructor or home-school parent's best resource for truly teaching the skill of résumé writing. The short course includes the all-important component of pre-resume skills assessment, including worksheets. Once skills are assessed and information is gathered, the course enters the next step: the art of résumé writing. Each section has an end-of-section worksheet asking questions to cement the knowledge gained in that section. The final section covers FFA CDE Interview Competition Preparation.
An accompanying Teacher's Edition is not presently available; however, the YRACC blue Teacher's Edition can be used - the page numbers will not match exactly. The Teacher's Edition includes relevant EALRs, GLEs and lesson plans. Complete unit takes approximately 5-8 classroom hours.
