Dear Ms. President: get your students writing with a purpose

Teaching writing?

Want your students to “get real” and see results?

Check out Cultural Survival at for ways that your students can take action on projects to protect indigenous people, their lands and their cultures. By composing their own letters and/or e-mails, students can partner with people from Indonesia to Guatemala, from the U.S. to Russia.

Authentic writing gives your students a purpose to write, a reason to fix their mistakes, and encourages clear communication with the reader of the letter.  You can also use the information on the website to create a great lesson that includes geography, sociology, politics, composition and much more.

Teach. Travel. Transform your World.
