This writing activity is a fun way to incorporate the element of real-world application. Teachers are given autonomy to verbally instruct students on specifics (e.g., format and content structure). Teachers can assign this as a group or individual activity, as well as a formal or informal activity. Please note this is not a lesson on writing a letter of complaint. It is a great ready-to-go assignment. For best results, print with 1'' margins.
