Proper emails bY sTudeNTs

This article goes over the proper convention for emails. The article goes over how emails should be written and defiantly what not to do. The author mentioned that many students white emails as they would a text message or any other type of electronic communication, while many professors see emails as a proper letter that should contain proper english. The first topic covered in how proper emails should be written and where many students lack proper form with is the subject line. While many people may think that this is a simple task… try contacting your professor and conveying your whole message in a few words with out saying something such as HELLLLP or “MY NAME GRADES”. Next, the introduction and grammar, while many students can fix easy grammar issues by simply clicking on the underlined words that the computer corrects for you. Many students lack in the area of an introduction and signature by properly introducing themselves and saying something such as Dear professor, … then starting their properly formatted email. This next part I find the most ironic because many professors go over, :do not email me if you don’t check my email first”. Many students fault in checking the class sillibus and website before franticly slaping an email together to send to their professor to ask a simple question they probably could have answered themselves. Finally, Paul Corrigan and Cameron Hunt McNabb mentioned that professors will be more in tune with your email in you include a sense of humanity. The authors mentioned that when writing an email students should be professional while still holding up and interesting email to ones professor. One thing a student can do to better their email to their professor is to give them your opinion on the class or complimenting something that commonly occures in the class.Screen Shot 2017-01-20 at 11.45.19 AM.pngScreen Shot 2017-01-20 at 11.44.52 AM.png
