Warm-Up for Writing Opinion Letters

Writing Opinion Letters
(c) Thoughtful Learning 2018

Have you ever wished something was different about your school? Perhaps, you think the playground equipment is unsafe or too crowded. Or that there should be a new food option offered at the cafeteria. Or maybe you have ideas for new field trips.

As a younger person, you might feel like you need to keep those ideas to yourself. After all, adults seem to control all the decision-making in your school and community. But you're not powerless, because you can write, and the written word holds the power for change. This unit explores one effective way to express your ideas and influence change in your school and community—by writing an opinion letter.
