"The project we did in our Language class was to write a newspaper article about current events at our school or articles interviewing someone at our school. We had just spent several days reading news articles in the newspapers you donated. I wanted my students to see that you have to write to your audience. Their purpose was to write for other fourth graders. Just for fun they also wrote advice columns, cartoons, and weather reports. They really enjoyed reading each others newspapers. It was very valuable to have real newspapers to look at before we wrote so that they could have a model to write from."
