Teacher: Laura Derosa, Hollis Broookline Middle School
Students will write a letter to their elected representative sharing their view on the bill that they have researched. Whether or not students actually send the letter to the representative is up to the judgement of the teacher. It may be the case that the opportunity to mail a letter could be presented as a reward for particularly high quality work on the part of the student.
The letter should be properly formatted and should address the following three areas in three paragraphs.
