DESCRIPTION

In this learning situation, the student is the representative of the Environmental Committee and is making a composting proposal to the school principal for his or her adult education center. The student needs to choose a type of composting (outdoor bin composting vs. indoor vermicomposting) and email the principal with the proposal. In order to reduce printing learning situations, this whole LS has been designed to be completed on the computer. The student can email the proposal directly to the teacher without printing it.

INTENTION PÉDAGOGIQUE

The intention is to have the student practise writing a formal email by informing and persuading the principal. It is also to have the student practise interpreting information from two informative texts taken from a real-life situation (from Winnipeg’s Green Action Centre website).

Utilisation

Before an exam or when learning how to write formal communications in 3103. This LS doesn’t include a form to be filled out, as the exam does.
