Today’s post is by Devin Jones, a member of FM’s Evening Tutoring Program and a 6th grader at Hawthorne Scholastic Academy. Devin had a class assignment to write a “letter to the editor” and submit it to the Chicago Tribune. Here’s what Devin has to say about his letter:
My letter was about the topic we had to write about in reading class. The topic was about food insecurity.
What I wrote came from my ideas about health problems caused by global warming when it can rain too much or it won’t rain enough so food can’t grow and crops dry out. People start starving.
There are categories in the Chicago Tribune and my letter went online. I was excited when my teacher sent an email to my mom telling her mine would be in the Tribune. I was the only boy out of three of us chosen.
I give special thanks to my mom and dad, and Ms.Lang my teacher.
