Below is what the students would be doing:
You are to write one of your senate representatives about a current bill that is being proposed. Pick something to write about that is of concern to you like a cure for cancer, a war, saving a company, gun laws, abortion, the environment, immigration, or something else that is being proposed in a current bill that is of interest and/or concern to you. You may either support the bill or not support it.
The instructions also go over how to formally write the letter and how to address an envelope. You could also turn the assignment into an email project very easily instead of mailing it if you have technology. Writing a formal letter is a skill that all students should know! There is also a student sample included!
