Product Description
Take your Consumer Advocacy, Revolutionary War, Progressive Era, or Civil Rights Movement unit to the next level with this authentic research and persuasive letter writing project by engaging your students to be real agents of change in initiating a boycott or “buycott” of their own!

Cultivating great writing skills isn’t hard. You just need highly scaffolded, step-by-step directions and models. Let's make this year a great year of writing!


************************************

Greatness is taking one’s words and thoughts, perfected over years in the classroom, to the real world in order to create authentic change.

The act of boycotting has been proven an effective means of protest from Boston Harbor’s Tea Party to the grape fields of California, but equally as powerful is that of the “buycott”- knowingly supporting companies whose values align with yours.

Challenge your students to “vote with their dollars” by researching a business or brand they support to assess if they want to continue purchasing from them, then writing and sending a formal business letter to declare their now more-educated position.

Replace the boring textbook with the topics and activities that matter to your students and help them create products that will influence the world beyond your classroom walls.
