For middle school students! This unit includes a contract so that students can work at their own pace. You will need to change the teacher's name to yours. You will need to model writing a business letter and a friendly letter using the information in this unit, and then the students can follow this packet to write a variety of different types of letters (letter to a college, complain to a business, thank you to a relative, etc.). There are 17 different types of letters to write; students will write 10. There is a lot of free choice, and you can change this to make it your own. I have students provide their own stamps (and I even ask parents to donate extras for kids who can't afford them - I ALWAYS have more than enough). I've also included two quizzes. You can teach the information on the quizzes while students take notes, and then quiz them a week or two later. This unit takes approximately 3-4 weeks, but could easily be shortened if you required fewer letters.
