After creating a google mail, saving on our H Drive, and sending attachments, students are going to address the below reader letter on google docs. The assignment does not get credit unless shared with me on google docs.
-- your reading history (reading when you were a child).
-- how reading was for you in elementary school.
-- how reading changed once you entered middle school
-- how you think reading changes in high school
-- how reading will impact your future plans (college/career)
-- your reading goal for the school year
Today we are setting up our google mail accounts. Follow the link here to be able to generate your email address.
1. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the subject write your first and last name
- In the email body, explain how you spent your summer. (I want a paragraph-ish)
- Send a microsoft word attachment, too.
- In the attachment, explain what your post high school plans are (so far)
2. Let me know when you send it, so I can verify the email and give you participation points.
