The 7th graders in Mr. Lawrence's classes have been receiving responses to business letters they wrote and mailed before Christmas break. They practiced format and audience while either complementing or complaining about various products. This was a fun, real-life activity for the students. We have posted 60 or so of the responses on the ceiling of our bungalow. The responses have been entertaining to read as a class. Some companies have even sent coupons and gift certificates to the students!
