Creative Writing - Research and Letters

Here's a fresh approach that combines research, business and personal letter writing, and creative story telling. Student groups research different decades in the life of a famous Japanese astronomer. They then craft a decade fact sheet, business and personal letters, and a character sketch. Although the writing activities focus on the life of Yuji Hyakuatake, the discoverer of a comet, any famous person could be substituted.
