In this activity, students set goals for themselves for a particular point in time in the future (end of a school session, in a month, six months, a year, etc.) and write letters to their future selves (and/or to others) about their goals. The letters are posted on the site, which e-mails the letters to recipients on the future date chosen. This works well as an introduction at the beginning of the school term.
