Letter of Recommendation

DOK, Purpose, & Audience
You will write a letter of recommendation for the contest of your choice. You will have 5 different contests to chose from.
You will use your depth of knowledge at the NEED TO KNOW or NICE TO KNOW levels to persuade the contest committee that your nominee (or nominees) fit the categories and qualities spelled out in the contest document.
Your audience is a committee of people who review all the letters of recommendation that come in for nominees. This committee gets many letters, so your letter (and nominee) must stand out above all the rest.
When you understand the DOK, Purpose and Audience, go on to the Brainstorming stage.
