Letter Writing gives your students an opportunity to move deeper inside the books they read, and to demonstrate their appreciation in an informal writing style. I have students complete THREE Letters each semester.
As students read their choice of fiction or non-fiction, have them keep a 'book remark' to highlight pages, events, quotations etc. that stand out. Then have them write a letter to their teacher where they give ideas and commentary about the book.
