Dossier workday…

Is a border needed?  If you do not have a lot of writing, a border would be VERY HELPFUL.

Does it look fantastic?  Take time to proofread and improve your writing.  Do you have any typing mistakes?

Does it look like you?  Is your personality showing through this 1 page?

Do you have 2 fonts (1 for writing sections, 1 for section headings)?

Do your colors coordinate?

Have you handed out your half-sheets yet?

Print a B/W copy and have someone else read over in class… tell them to find mistakes.  Mark the mistakes, then fix the mistakes.

Create a great first impression through this document.
