This product is perfect for a one day lesson after you have completed a short story unit. Students have to write you a letter in business letter format detailing the short story they enjoyed the most. Essentially, they are writing to you as though you are an editor at the New Yorker. They have to "sell" you the story and explain the plot, characters, setting, etc.
It should take 1 day (maybe 2) to complete. An editing checklist is also included!
