Writing Letters

I used to teach my students how to write letters. We had certain projects where they were required to write letters asking for information. I made copies of their letters. When the responses to their requests came in we made a bulletin board showing the letters the students had written next to the response. It made a very interesting bulletin board and a good learning process.
