⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Extremely satisfied

Perfect resource to introduce proper email etiquette. Used it during the second week of school and was a good way to have students collaborate on a low stakes activity. Will continue to use each year. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Extremely satisfied

This was so helpful when planning a lesson on “how to write an email.” So many students didn’t understand what a proper email looked like so this resource was so helpful in providing set guidelines, examples, and even a little “discussion”. I didn’t have to change a thing in order to use this with my students. Thanks for making this available to us!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Extremely satisfied

I love this. I used it for the first time last year to show students how to write to their teachers. It was the first time I had students writing well constructed emails and for the most part, they did a great job sticking to proper email format for the year! I saw such an improvement with how kids talked to me digitally. It’s already in my plans for next year.

This lesson was designed for upper-level high school students. However, the content is accessible and appropriate for middle and high school students.The PDF document is a secured document that cannot be edited.
