This is on my syllabus

1 Comment

The semester is about to begin. What fun. I am including this on all my syllabi this semester:

E-mail etiquette:

      E-mail is a convenient tool to help us communicate. It is NOT, however, a free-for-all. You should be courteous when you e-mail your professors. Please write in complete sentences and in actual English; do not fill your message with SMS jargon or slang. If you don’t have time to write a respectable, readable message, you should not write it at all but seek some form of communication that fits your schedule.

Appropriate topics

1.)I have a question about the reading or about a writing issue.

2.)I do not understand what you said in class about a discussion topic.

3.)I cannot come to your office hours this week but would like to see you at a different time.

4.)I will have to miss class next week and would like to arrange something.

5.)I have a scheduling or logistical problem.

Inappropriate topics (I will ignore these messages)-

1.)Please tell me what you covered in the class I missed.

2.)What’s the homework?

3.)U have 2 (something something).

4.)Imma gonna b goin 2 a gr8 fam vaca next week so u need 2 (something something).
