Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a compilation of 16 template letters for students who have committed a wide range of infractions of classroom rules, including not paying attention in class, eating in class, etc. Each letter offers a literary, thought provoking opportunity for the student to write a synopsis of the problem, the cause, a solution and a reflection.
