This is a ready to print and go document you can give to your students on how to correctly write a business letter. It includes instructions, suggested material, specific requirements, and a sample letter.
Some text from the document:
Choose a company that you would like to write a business letter. In your letter you will offer praise of a certain product and offer suggestions on how to make the product better. Choose features of the item(s) that you enjoy most and explain to the company why you like them so much. In addition, suggest some ideas to the company’s managers or CEO’s about how their product could be improved. Sample companies you may write to include Apple, Hershey’s Chocolate, Hollister, AT&T, etc. Choose a company that interests you and be sure you like/use/eat/wear their products! Oftentimes, companies will mail you samples of current or future products or coupons as a thank you for taking the time to write.
Below are the elements of a standard business letter and their functions:
Return Address: Your address
Date: Leave two blank lines after the return address. Always spell out the month and include the day, a comma, and the year.
Inside Address: Leave two blank lines after the date. Then type the address of the person or company to whom you are writing.
Salutation: Type Dear, followed by the person's name. End the line with a colon. If you don’t know the
name of the person, use a title instead (i.e., Dear Editor: Dear Madam:).
Body: Your margins should be justified. Skip one line before starting a new paragraph, but do not indent. Make sure that each paragraph is clear and concise.
Closing: Leave two lines of space after your last body paragraph, then use a conventional closing, followed by a comma (i.e., Sincerely, Sincerely Yours, Respectfully).
