What makes us standout?

You will have a substitute for the following two class periods.  Mr. Braaten introduced the assignment prior to leaving.  The assignment is as follows.

We discussed the Habitude of "House on Fire."  In this Habitude we discussed the importance of a message.  Additionally we talked about the "why" and the "what" of what we are trying to communicate.  As the communicator we must know the "what" in order to create the "why."  

Mr. Braaten introduced the quote, "At graduation your diploma will look like everyone else's, your resume will not!"  Once we leave the comforts of high school we only have our resume to make us stand out.  Our resume is the what that gives a person a reason why to hire us, select us for an award or position of leadership.  

We all have something that makes us special/unique.  It may be a combination of skills, academic abilities, or the ability to build personal relationships.  During this segment of class each student must do the following things:

  • Fill out some sort of application that involves writing about themselves (award application, officer application(there is an easy to work with FFA chapter officer application if you click here, etc.)

  • Write a letter of recommendation from the perspective of someone else

    • must be written in the 3rd person​

    • contain evidence  you have hoped that others have seen
