This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, helps teachers select e-pals for their students and develop real-life writing and learning experiences for them. Students learn the format of a friendly letter and the parts of an e-mail message. With careful selection of an e-pal group, students can also learn about other cultures, languages, and geographic areas that align with the curriculum in your school. This lesson incorporates a student interactive, student handouts, and links to a variety of Web resources.
