Students should proofread, revise, and refine their letters; you will approve each letter before it is written in final form. In addition, have students refer to the rubric when completing their final draft.

If you have computers available, have students use the Letter Generator
tool to type the final copies of their letters. If this is not possible, the letters can be handwritten. All group members will sign the letter and each group will address its stamped envelope. (The return address should be the school address, not a home addresses, to avoid families being placed on an organization's mailing list.)

Mail the letters. Tell students that if answers are received, you will take time to share them with the whole class at an appropriate time. Tell students that it is possible every letter will not receive a response and they should not be disappointed if that occurs.
