Expressing Your Views to the Letter

Analyze the motivation, purpose, and value of letters to the editor by examining letters written in response to the violence at Columbine High School. For homework, middle and high schoolers write their own letters to the editor about an article titled "Suspect in L.A. Shootings Surrenders to F.B.I" from the New York Times. Note: You could use a less-dated article to bring current events to your language arts instructional activity. The featured article is from 1999.
