Summary

This lesson plan uses fascinating letters (written by people famous, infamous, and ordinary, some of whom lived through extraordinary times), as a starting point for discussion of and practice in the conventions and purposes of letter-writing. Its 10 lessons seek to make students able to: (1) list at least 5 conventions of letter writing; (2) cite at least 5 purposes for letter writing; and (3) send a letter electronically (if technology is available). Intended for grades 3-5, the plan offers suggestions on preparing to teach this lesson; and notes subject areas covered (literature/biography and U.S. history), time required to complete the lesson, skills used and taught in the lesson, and lists of the standards developed by professional associations or governments that are related to the lesson. Activities to extend the lesson and further resources conclude the lesson plan. (SR)
