THE MEN AND WOMEN OF LETTERS
26 Letter-Writing Activities
By Charles W. Hyatt. Help students learn how to write 26 types of letters based on model letters arranged in alphabetical order from A to Z, including a letter of application, a business letter, letter of condolence, "Dear John" letter, letter of introduction, love letter, letter of recommendation, and a letter to a soldier. Students analyze the model letters and then craft letters of their own. The models include actual letters from famous figures, historical context for the letters, tips on how to write the particular genre, and, just for fun, historical background on the origins of each of the 26 letters of the alphabet.
