        Writing Letters for Social Action | Teaching Multicultural Literature Workshop 7: Social Justice and Action

        This teacher's guide explores how to assist students to craft persuasive letters to real audiences, outline problems, and propose solutions. In Laura Alvarez's bilingual class, students research and write letters about problems that immigrants face: issues that directly affect them, their families, and their communities. As the students research and write these letters, they move from analysis to action and learn basic rhetorical strategies for incorporating evidence into a written argument.
