Writing may refer to two activities: the inscribing of characters on a medium, with the intention of forming words and other constructs that represent language or record information, and the creation of material to be conveyed through written language. (There are some exceptions; for example, the use of a typewriter to record language is generally called typing, rather than writing.) Writing refers to both activities equally, and often both activities occur simultaneously; however one may write while doing only one of the activities.
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
I used to teach my students how to write letters. We had certain projects where they were required to write letters asking for information. I made copies of their letters. When the responses to their requests came in we made a bulletin board showing the letters the students had written next to the response. It made a very interesting bulletin board and a good learning process.
