PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This assignment is designed as a companion to my Business Letter Writing Unit and requires access to Microsoft Excel. After learning the basics of how to write a letter, students will open this Excel assignment. As they type the letter in, they will get immediate feedback as to whether they have done it correctly or not. Although Excel is not designed for writing letters, the formula capabilities are perfect for reiterating spacing, capitalization, and punctuation.

The file comes with six letters, a video for the teacher, explaining the assignment in detail, and a short student video that demos how to do it--perfect for absent students! Huge time saver and a great way to make sure they GET IT! Also included is a key, and the video explains how to get into the back end of the Excel sheet and create your own, if you want more than six letters.

I have classroom tested this assignment and IT. WAS. AWESOME. The kids were getting that immediate feedback and asking themselves what they were missing and why--it was a much higher level of learning and helped them retain the information much better. Plus, they just think it's cool. So that also helps...:)
