Your students are going to assume the role of an adult who fulfills the Constitutional requirements of a president. Your students believe that they are ready to be the next president of the United States! They need to convince the chairpeople of the National Committees that they have the characteristics, skills and experience to become the president.
Their task is to write a four-paragraph formal cover letter. The purpose of the cover letter is to introduce themselves, highlight and emphasize their positive attributes, contributions and skills and to convince the leaders of the National Committees that they will be an excellent president.
