Favorite Teacher Letter (JF): Write a letter to your favorite teacher in MS 322 (not including Mr. Keck), in which you explain why that teacher is your favorite.

  • Begin with a salutation on its own line: Dear Ms. Jimenez, 
  • Next, include an introduction that hooks your reader and makes your claim…
  • Write three or more body paragraphs each about one big reason why (with supporting evidence).
  • Next, write a conclusion that RESTATES your claim, REVIEWS the big reasons why, REVEALS how important this person is!
  • Close with: Sincerely, Roberto Cruz (on two lines with a space between!)
  • Use PaperRater to check your spelling and punctuation…
  • Speak to the teacher directly (they will see the letter)
