    • Remember!
    • An email is a piece of writing which has a(n):
    • Introduction (introduce yourself/topic)
    • Body (state why you are writing, ask the question/s where necessary)
    • Conclusion (close the topic by either saying thanks or asking a question)
  • 8. More things to consider:
    • Give some context for the question, situating it in the particular assignment or activity you're working on.
    • Punctuate. Capitalize appropriately . Use complete words and sentences; this is not texting. Check your spelling .
    • Be specific and detailed about what the difficulty or challenge is regarding.
    • Ask an actual question, rather than leaving it up to me to infer.
    • Be nice and thank for answering.
    • Sign your full name.
