I've written many letters of recommendation this year. One student made it easy for me, so next year I will require the information she supplied. First, all information was in a manila folder with her name on the tab. She included a cover letter about the letter she required. The letter included due dates, a bit about the college/scholarship and her career aspirations. She included an updated resume, a list of current classes and addressed, stamped envelopes.

The folder saved me SO much time and I felt I was better able to paint a picture of this student's abilities. Apparently, she handed these to everyone who wrote her a letter.
