Write a formal letter

This may seem like a silly project, but in today’s digital world, many learners simply haven’t acquired the skills to write a formal letter.  This letter could apply to any of the projects on this list, and the letter could be addressed to anyone your learners feel could help support their cause.  This could be a leader of their town, a board member of a Fortune 500 company, or even a celebrity that they perceive as untouchable.  All people can be contacted, it just takes some work.  If your learners typed a letter (or even wrote it by hand!) there’s a good chance the person on the other end will respond to their genuine act of communication.  We’re all humans, no matter our age or perceived status.  The sooner learners realize this fact, the sooner they will remove the invisible barriers that keep them from making the change they seek to make.
