Teach your students proper email etiquette – or "email netiquette" – with this 45-minute "How to Email" lesson that includes a high-interest intro. lecture and two fun real-world writing activities.

First, present the right and wrong way to build an email message with a dynamic 15-slide Prezi lecture. Then, assign students to work in teams of two as they evaluate four sample emails sent by high school students seeking a summer internship. Finally, have students work individually to craft an email of their own using the rules you’ve established to fulfill a real-world scenario. This final activity includes three different email writing options. Feel free to choose the scenario that applies best to your student population or use all three prompts within one class period for differentiated assignments.

This easy-to-deliver, stand-alone lesson will nicely fill any hole in your class calendar and easily be used as an emergency sub plan. It's also a crucial first-month-of-school lesson to ensure your own email basket isn't filled with cringe-inducing messages from students.

I hope your classes enjoy this real-world writing task. For more lesson ideas, be sure to check out my catalog of writing instruction materials.
