This real-world writing activity gives students a chance to complain. Complaint letters are a professional way of addressing a problem in service or product, and a well-written complaint is more likely to get a positive outcome. This activity helps guide students in the structure and components of a professional complaint. Because most letter writing is done via email, the activity also includes materials for a complain email as well. Bonus activity—have students respond to each other’s complaint letter.
