Email Revisions

Scenario 1:

Susan is unhappy with her grade in her college class. She wants to  clarify what she can do to improve in the course. She also feels like  venting her frustrations to her professor due to the many hours she is  spending studying and writing papers (which may or may not be a good  idea). She decides to email her professor; however, before she hits  SEND, she asks you, her friend, to take a look at the email.

 

Reading the email, you note a lack of civility, polarizing language,  and other unethical language (given the context). Help Susan rewrite her  email, so she can express her concerns over her poor grade politely and  ask for help from the professor.

 

Susan’s Email:

(No greeting) I want to know why my grade was so bad. I spent hours  finding sources and writing that paper and it was graded unfair. My  friend wrote her paper the night before it was due and got a better  grade. I know most professors grade hard but this is ridiculous. I felt  good when I submitted the paper but now I feel like crap. I guess I am  going to fail. (No closing)

 

Scenario 2:

Don is worried about passing his college class due to some low  grades. He wants to ask his professor for help to pass the class. He  decides to email his professor; however, before he hits SEND, he decides  to ask you, his friend, to take a look at the email.

 

Reading the email, you note a lack of civility, poor manners, and  poor grammar in Don’s email. Help Don rewrite the email, so he can  express his concerns and appropriately seek help from the professor.

 

Don’s Email:

(No greeting) Yo teach. I dunno no way to pass this class. What I gotta do to pass? (No closing)
