[Teacher-talkhswriters] Email rules

Linda W responded to Sheryl's email message about email and word processing tips such as avoiding use of tabs for paragraphs. We have a book in our library called, "The PC is not a Typewriter", which describes other "technology-age" keyboarding issues. It's several years old, however, and probably out of date already!

Just for the heck of it, I looked at this issue on Wikipedia - here is one snippet: Most modern literature on typography says that double spacing is wrong,[18] but some non-typographical sources indicate that it could be used on a typewriter or with a monospaced font.[19] The majority of style guides opt for a single space after terminal punctuation for final and published work, with a few permitting double spacing in draft manuscripts and for specific circumstances based on personal preference.[20] Grammar and design guides, including Web design guides, provide similar guidance....(The debate continues...)

Thanks. These are helpful. I did not know the one about avoiding use of tabs for paragraphs. This might also be helpful to people who don?t know much about computers or email. It could lead to good questions and discussions of terms.
I think it?s amusing that this list says to use spell check, but it wasn?t used on the list. Also, is it OK for lists like this to not follow the EAE? I notice places where I would have put periods instead of commas. There are also places where I would put commas after clauses. This could be a punctuation lesson in itself.
It is hard for me to NOT punctuate correctly. What do others think?
Linda

Where did you get the rules for email etiquette or did you develop your own? Would you share? I only have access to two computers, so we would have to share, but this sounds like a good lesson.

we are fortunate enough to have a Smaratboard. While I am still learning, I have used it to write on like a chalk board. I think the students better understand language and math skills because it is large, all can see and the students participate while watching the demo.

Teacher Talk- April 7

 

Integrating technology in the classroom can be a challenge. I know preparing our students for writing in the 21st century is important but the barriers can slow the progress of the integration. Time, money, and equipment present hurdles that have to be overcome. As teachers we will need to think outside the box and create writing lessons that will improve the academic realm of writing as well as learning technology. The computer presents the most obvious choice for lessons. I developed a lesson that looked at email etiquette and then had students respond to a teacher generated office memo email. Students had to access the email account, read the memo, and then reply to the memo using the etiquette rules we had discussed. For many, this was a first experience using email.

 

I liked the lesson and thought it was very worthwhile. The students were engaged in learning at each step. Nevertheless, I did discover that the lesson took much longer than I had anticipated and I will need to remember that as I begin to intertwine technology and writing in the class time that has been set up for writing instruction. Just another examination of the saying ? so much to do ?.so little time?.?

I have used the email assignment several times.?? I was glad to get the email etiquette guidelines.?? I know my students wont always abide by these rules but they need to know what is expected of them in professional emails.
??? 
I have a lot of students that struggle to type.? This adds to the problem of writing a good paper.? I find it easier with some students to stick to pencil and paper.
?
At this point my class is getting smaller because several have tested and passed the GED test.? I am happy about that of course? but wish they would come back for more writing classes.
