Guide to creating professional emails:
- Create an appropriate greeting: Hello Name, Good afternoon Name, Dear Name
- State the reason you are sending the email: I am emailing you…
- Always attach documents. Never copy and paste them into the body of the email. In Microsoft Outlook you need to click the icon that looks like a paperclip in order to attach a document. State that you have included an attachment and request a confirmation receipt: I have attached a copy of my Name Assignment. Please confirm that you have received and can open this attachment.
- Ask any questions you might have about future assignments. Be sure to provide specific details about the assignment. Ask a clear and concise question so your teacher will understand your needs.
- Thank the recipient of the email and bid farewell: Thank you very much, Thank you and have a wonderful day
- Attach all homework documents. Never copy and paste them into the text box. Assignments should be saved as First name, Last initial, assignment name: Sally P Independent Reading Essay
