When teaching high school, one of the skills that I taught my students was how to compose a resume. One of the things that I told them was that in addition to working very hard in all of your classes that it was also important to show that you were involved in additional activities. Showing that you were involved in activities helps to show that you are a well-rounded individual which is something that colleges and employers seek. Also, you will certainly enjoy school more if you will "get involved". At that time, I created this poster of myself and my husband showing that we were good students and that we were very involved in clubs and activities. My high school students enjoyed seeing this so I thought that my middle school students might enjoy seeing it too.
