My students aren’t quite ready to write their own resumes but there is still a place for this app in my classroom.

A great way to replace or extend a biography project is to create a resume of the person you are studying.  Have students use the Pocket Mobile Resume app to demonstrate their knowledge of a historical figure’s personal information, experience and education, while choosing contemporaries to act as references and identify the skills and strengths of this person.  Try it out in your classroom!
