Persuasive Writing – Social Action Letters « Ms. Rankin's English Class

Here's a lesson for middle school students (grades 6 through 8), but it provides useful advice for letter-writers for any age.

Ms. Rankin writes:
In our last class, students developed the following list of SUCCESS CRITERIA for writing an effective persuasive letter. These should be used as guidelines as they work on their rough drafts and final copies.
Next up in the lesson: those eight criteria.
