I'm stepping into a lts assignment next week. I'll be teaching french immersion language arts. I'm trying to design my units and originally I thought that I would do a unit on friendly and business letters. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that no one really writes letters anymore - not in the traditional sense, anyway. So, do I bother teaching them how to write letters or would it just end up being a waste of time and busy work considering that letter writing seems to be an obsolete skill? Thoughts?
