Part of Lesson Plan: Letter of Introduction or Cover Letters
Activity Overview / Details
Show sample letter.
Most students do not have any trouble with the first and last paragraph but the middle one can be difficult for them. Brain storm as a class about different phases they could use.
You could use the same charts or information the students brain stormed in the "letter of recommendation" unit.
It is effective to have students write a rough draft and have other students do a peer review of the first letter. This will give students an opportunity to see other writing styles, both good and bad.
