Good Topics for Email
You should email your teacher if:
– You have an easy question that can be answered in a paragraph or less.
– You have an assignment that you are allowed to submit via email.
Bad Topics for EmailThere are some rules that it’s best to follow, such as:– Don’t try to turn in an assignment through email if your teacher has specified against it.
– If you have to get an extension for an assignment, do it in person.
– Don’t bring up any topic that will require continuous conversation.GoodReads
