Google Classroom Users: We have all been bombarded lately with student emails in our inboxes. We were kind of tired of the lack of quality we were seeing, not to mention the occasional demanding tone. If you've had to read your fair share of cringe-worthy emails from students, you might want to consider downloading this free resource. Help your students learn how to respectfully email you about their assignments while also displaying all the necessary parts of an email. We maintain a humorous tone with this assignment, making it more lighthearted and enjoyable for everyone. We could all use a chuckle about now anyways!

Lesson Description

1) Students watch a video of a frustrated, but comical, teacher addressing her students' lack of email etiquette.

2) Students complete a Google Form or Edpuzzle (both options are included in this resource) that aligns with the video. Both versions provide poor-quality examples of emails and ask students to choose the best way to fix the email based on what is covered in the video.

3) Students read a prompt, giving them a direction of what information they should cover in an email to their teacher.

4) Students will use a resource to help guide them through the parts of an email/letter as they prepare their own email to their teacher.

5) Students will email their teacher displaying proper etiquette and format, applying the new learning from the lesson.
