Tuesdays with Morrie – Letter to Author, Mitch Albom

As my unit on Tuesdays with Morrie continued, I moved into a series of lessons I called ‘What’s the Point?’ which focused on the ‘why’ behind reading this book. I think it’s important for students to know the purpose of reading certain texts, and this lesson set discussed this and helped to make meaning between Mitch and Morrie and the students’ personal lives.

dear A major component of this lesson series was application–taking what was learned and read and applying it to the students’ own lives. The major activity of this segment was writing a letter to the author, Mitch Albom.

In this letter the students would talk about what they learned, enjoyed, disliked, and any questions they had.
