During today’s class, write a letter addressed to Professor Ellis (using his school address found on the City Tech English Department website–Google it). The letter should follow this format:
Your address (okay to make it up)
Dr. Jason Ellis
Dear Dr. Ellis,
One sentence greeting (e.g., How are you doing today?)
Paragraph of 6-10 sentences that makes the argument that I should read the article that you read for today’s class. Open with your thesis and include reasons supporting your thesis. Weave summary into these reasons. Include the author’s name, article title, magazine title, and issue or date information. Remember to italicize the magazine title and put the article title in quotes.
One offer sentence in closing (e.g., If you would like to discuss the article, please let me know.)
