"Resume Rainbow" for middle and high school students Make the resume a little less daunting by working on it one section at a time. On the front is the section name and a sample (I used my own high school experiences; you can make one up). On the back is the info that must be included and some tips (e.g., lead with a verb for Experience). The cards go in rainbow order —voila! All the students have to do now is type it up. I do suggest one card per job/internship in the Experience section… mine is a little cramped. Happy resume writing (and teaching) :)

Nice!

Teach a class about racism… and this is what happens.

Sooo white people calling out white people for white tears. This is important, watch it all and also pay attention to how the white woman in the red sweater with the short brown hair doesn’t detach herself from white people and she basically says, “fuck our feelings because PoC go through this all the time”

DID YOU SEE THE PART WHERE ONE OF THE PARENTS SAID IT WASN’T OKAY TO LABEL PEOPLE AS WHITE PEOPLE

This is a pretty important video for teachers to watch.

Super important

Because grammar at your desk is a snooze.

hithertokt:

Let’s talk subject-verb agreement. Here’s how to make grammar entertaining for both you and your students:

  • Create a bunch of sentences (some easy, some tricky) for students to select the correct form of the verb. Make sure they’re numbered.
  • Cut them out into individual…

I’m pretty sure I’ve already reblogged this, but it’s still nice to have as a reminder.
