Learning Activity: Writing a Letter
When you are upset or hurt by a friend or family member, or they are doing something to hurt themselves, it can be difficult to talk to them face to face. There are several other ways to communicate with them. Students should learn alternate forms of communication, such as writing a letter.
Writing a letter gives students the opportunity to be heard, without being interrupted or challenged. Taking the time to write a letters shows that you care. You can also revise the letter as many times as you want before giving it to the recipient. That way, it will say exactly what you want it to say.
