HMWK: Each student is responsible for going back to his/her original letter to be sure it meets needed letter-writing criteria

Materials/Technology needed:
-laptop cart for students -electronic or hard copy of their brochures -handouts: project rubric, sample email

Rationale/Alternatives: One very valuable skill that seems to be lacking from curriculum and textbook resources is proper letter-writing form and style, one that would surely prove indispensable in the students future career endeavors. I have plenty of helpful handouts if needed to support the endeavor from summer classes Ive taken, and if the students seem to be latching onto it and would like to continue to reach a broader, more authentic audience, it was suggested that they write to a French tourist center to ask for information.
