This product contains made up "agony aunt" letters or letters requesting help from your students on an issue. These issues involve lying to parents, and cheating in school. There are three letters. You can give this assignment after you have taught students about writing with a purpose, persuasive techniques and writing for a particular audience. You can divide your students into groups and give each group the same letter. This will allow for discussion and debate as you allow each group to share their thoughts on the topic being discussed. This will also lead to a discussion on how peoples' opinions differ and why discussing a problem with other people may be benefitical to you. A follow up or homework activity might be asking the students to create their own pretend agony aunt letters. You can then collect these making sure no names are on them and pass them out. The students can then answer these as an individual assignment.
