In this writing assignment, you will write a letter to a future employer to persuade her/him to hire you for a job. Based on the intelligence you identify with, think about some important ideas, or examples, of why you would be a strong candidate for the job. In order to receive 100 points, which is an A+, you must include the following in your letter:
*Strong adjectives, verbs, and transitional words to persuade (25 pts.) *An interesting beginning that states the topic and important ideas (strong reasons) in chronological order that support the topic (25 pts.) *Correct capitalization, spelling, and punctuation (25 pts.) *Letter format: Date, greeting, body, closing, and signature (25 pts.)
Also, you would be wise to consider writing a strong, persuasive ending. Be sure to maintain a calm "voice" throughout the letter. You may write your final drafts in pen or you may type them on a computer.
Remember what we practiced in class: Give an opinion, give reasons, give facts!!!
