Part 1: Read the NY Times article on e-mail etiquette. This is shared with your class via diigo.
After reading the New York Times article, respond in diigo to two of these questions:
- Do you agree that e-mail has made professors “too accessible,” as the article notes? Why or why not?
- What are your thoughts on the notion that professors’ expertise has “become just another service that students, as consumers, are buying”?
- Do you think young people should be more formal with teachers and other adults? Why or why not?
- How do you think junior faculty members who rely on their students’ evaluation for tenure should respond to overly familiar or informal correspondence from students without risking their reputations?
- Do you think professors should let students know when they are making poor impressions? Why or why not?
Part 2: Open the e-mail scavenger hunt link. Copy the questions 1-10 and paste them into a new Google Doc. Use the links to help with your questions. When you are done, share the document with mrb (a) mhsstudents.net
