Part one Our culture has given us mixed messages about how to communicate with CMC (computer-mediated communication). Some of us have either never been taught or we have lost a sense of professionalism. Students are often informal in their academic communication with professors.
Therefore, professors need to know that students understand how to CORRECTLY/PROFESSIONALLY, FORMALLY email a professor, dean, potential employer, boss or CEO of their own company. Write a formal, MLA 8th edition source citation for the resource where you found the information for writing a formal email.
(Please include accessed dates and URLs on electronic sources)Write both a subject line and a formal email to a professor, dean, boss, or company CEO including Clear subject line (typically 7 words or less)Respectful salutation (select more formal than less formal)
Message content or request (include any relevant due dates or deadlines); keep it specific to the issue. Review for grammatical or spelling errors (no “texting” shortcuts ie “wbu”, “lol” etc)End with a formal, complimentary closing statement Use a full signature Your posting should be between 250-400 words. (If students are challenged meeting the word count – make the body of the email longer/add more content or description of a specific issue.)
