Description: Complete a Job Application
Using an agency-created employment history, student (IL-A) will fill out an authentic job application. Student (BL–BH) will fill out an authentic job application with a reduced number of sections that student needs to complete. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways such as: (1) giving BL-BH the complete form given to IL-A students and highlighting the sections BL-BH students need to fill out (2) giving BL-BH a reduced form which includes only those sections of the authentic application (given to IL-A students) that are assigned to BL-BH students. These authentic applications are optimally internet based applications (see internet guidelines on the EL Civics website) but can be a paper based ones.

Optimally, the application will be completed on a computer and sent to the assessor electronically.
