Inspired by the true story of Philippe Petit, you are going to write a letter. There are lots of options of what style of letter you can write and who your letter will be to.
+ Write a letter to Petit himself to say that he is inspiring and what you thought of his walk
+ Write a letter to Petit asking him to think about the consequences of his actions ( other people might try/its dangerous)
+ Write a formal letter to a judge after he is arrested to convince the Judge to be strict with Petit because he broke the law
+ Write a persuasive letter to the judge asking them to forgive Petit and let him go without punishment.
Or an idea of your own.
Have a think about the difference of a formal and informal letter and writing to persuade or to discuss.
