Give your students an authentic, meaningful writing assignment that includes valuable choice! Have them write letters to their government representatives about issues that matter to them! This is a great project for use in an English classroom during a persuasive writing unit or in a History classroom during a unit on government and civic responsibility. This set includes everything you need to make this assignment a success: an explanation page for you with detailed instructions and tips, a letter planning and research page, an outline page, a letter formatting page to help guide their actual writing (many students have never written a letter before!), and a peer review page.
