Letter Writing Tips
Lead your students through these tips for writing letters. Emphasize that a letter needs to have a purpose. You are writing for a reason about a specific topic. A letter also has an audience. A specific person will receive and read the letter. Letters are forms of communication, from one person to another to accomplish something.
The form that a letter takes is important as well, but the whole point of formatting is to make sure the reader understands the topic and purpose of the letter.
