    I've got HS SPE and we are working on composing emails. Is there a website that teaches how to compose an email? Mini-lessons/tutorials? Anything for good reinforcement?

    Thanks!

    Are you looking for instructions on how to compose an email, or do you want the students to learn how to compose emails?

    One of my professors in college gave us a great, in-class email exercise for practicing managerial communication. She wrote up 10 or so emails from "employees" and sent them out to all of us in the span of a few minutes. We then had to respond to each email (or not respond to them) in whatever way we deemed appropriate. We sent the emails to her email address. You might have to change the exercise a little bit, but for us the goal was to practice communicating to your employees as a manager. Lower priority items may go unanswered for the purposes of the class. Maybe you can send your students a catch-up email from a "friend" and have them respond?
