Add a little fun to ANY novel, play, or short story with this easy-to-use worksheet where students take on the identity of a character from your current piece of literature and complete a job application, basing their answers on an analysis of the character’s actions.
This 2-page file (printable PDF & Google Drive versions) includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from my students’ study of Homer’s The Odyssey, detailing Odysseus’ background that qualifies him to work as a middle school physical education teacher. The worksheet, though, is designed to work with ANY piece of literature.
