Product Description
Take your American Government or Civics, U.S History, or English class to the next level with this authentic research and letter writing project by engaging your students to gain the confidence of engaging their civic voice with their larger community!

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.

This nation holds higher than anything else its free speech and free press, yet so few meaningfully engage it with their community. Town halls are sorely attended and newspapers are struggling to stay alive. Twitter and YouTube are great content providers, but still fail to replace the “long-form” articulated, deep conversations of the local paper’s Opinion section.

Challenge your students to be part of the quality, in-depth discussion of their favorite and most important issues by researching one about which they are passionate, selecting the appropriate media outlet, and writing a submit-worthy Letter to the Editor, arguing a thoughtful and well-supported 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.

Included in this project package:
- Overview sheet- offers directions for a variety of letter styles
- Annotated Sample sheet- provides examples of 3 different letters
- Reflection & Rubrics sheets (CCSS aligned and generic)- gives clear expectations for fast scoring
- Editable Word Doc Rubric- for your own customization!
