For this assignment, students were asked to choose a business they admire and to write to that business requesting something from them. The “something” could be anything- a simple response back, a piece of memorabilia, a letter of recognition, it all depends on the individual writing the letter. As we began drafting these letters, we discussed how to appropriately and effectively write in a persuasive manner. This led us into a discussion about argumentation within writing. Once we finished our letters, we signed them and addressed them to each students’ respective business (businesses included Microsoft, HyperX, Stray Fawn Studios, Sony, and Chuck E. Cheese). We will keep everyone posted as to whether or not we receive any responses. Here’s to the power of the written word!
