Product Description
WARNING: This project is designed for English teachers with a sense of humor.
This activity/project is based upon Ted Nancy's (Jerry Seinfeld) Letters from a Nut. This book is a compilation of "nutty" letters written by Nancy (Seinfeld) to various businesses, colleges, companies...offering a "nutty" observation, idea, request for information... . It's one of those RARE projects that your students will WANT to do. Briefly, your students will apply their knowledge of formal letter writing and voice to an authentic document. They will develop a "nutty" voice, research company information, and create a professionally formatted "Nutty" letter.
This PPT offers some guidelines and examples of actual nutty letters (authored by yours truly) and the responses received from the corporations to whom they were sent.
