Product Description
This TED Talk lesson is intended to be used with Omar Ahmed's TED Talk, " Political Change with Pen and Paper."

From TED: Want your local politician to pay attention to an issue you care about? Take this tip from Omar Ahmad, the beloved former mayor of San Carlos, California: Send a monthly handwritten letter. Old-fashioned correspondence, he shows, is more effective than email, phone — or even writing a check. Listen for his four simple steps to writing a letter that works.

This TED Talk lesson is a great addition to any Civics, American Government, Current Events, or United States History unit on civic engagement. I also use this lesson with my Life Skills students and Independent Study English students.

TED lessons can be used as mini-lessons or as a supplement to a prepared unit. I often assign TED lessons as make-up work or extra credit. TED Talk lessons also make great lessons on sub days!
