WEEK 2: EMAIL YOUR PROFESSOR

READ: EMAIL ETIQUETTE from the OWL @ Purdue


Assignment
Craft an email introduction to me, your instructor. My contact info can be found on your CONTACT page in this website.

Following the helpful hints from the OWL at Purdue, above, make sure to introduce yourself, tell me a little about you (1-paragraph), tell me about your feelings about writing (1-paragraph), tell me about your experience with team and group projects (1-paragraph), and close with any questions or concerns you have about ENGL402.

Send the email to me.

Make sure to use "402" in the subject line.

Make sure to sign your email

Make sure to address me in the opening.

I'm leaving this rather vague on purpose so I can learn a little bit about you and your writing style. Please do NOT address me as "Hey" and please be as professional as possible. If you need more assistance, check out:
