I was thinking about using this with A Doll's House. I was going to make it a group activity for my regular 10th grade class. Any thoughts??

Thanks for writing. There is a sample resume within the lesson: http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/lesson_images/lesson198/ShakespeareResume.pdf. There is also an online tool to help students understand the parts and pieces of a resume: http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/interactives/resume/. Good luck!
