Personal Letter: Setting the Tone

Introduction: 

Sean wants to wear his family’s heirloom—a pocket watch—to his wedding. The problem is: his dad has it and they haven’t spoken in years. Could a letter with a warm and gentle tone persuade his father to cooperate?

In this lesson you will:
  • Decide what to include in a letter and what to leave out
  • Practice setting the right tone in a letter
  • Choose words with apostrophes in the right places
  • Practice setting the right tone in a letter to a friend
