Classroom Considerations
  • Fifty-page packet is divided into three sections: informal letters, formal letters, and key word activities
  • Because some of the word choice, expressions and formats are European style (15th February 2008), preview the entire packet to determine which templates to use with your class
  • The models could be used to introduce how other countries format letters
  • The activities assume that the letters will be handwritten
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • The packet includes sample letters and practice exercises
Cons

Some of the templates may need to be revised to model US style addresses and expressions
