Sending a ‘professional’ email is such an important skill! I don’t know about you, but this is something my students struggle with- big time. They send emails with only one or two words, no punctuation, nothing in the subject line… the list goes on. So, this year, I’m devoting a lot of time and energy to helping my students obtain this skill.
I use this as a follow up activity to a class discussion about sending professional emails. I ask students questions like “Why is it important to know how to send a professional email?” or “What should be included in a professional email?” We then talk about all of the components of a professional email.
I used this as an independent work activity for students after this discussion, but it could also be done as a whole or small group activity.
