Event description

Description

Who has not had an email to a parent or colleague misinterpreted? If you have not, then consider yourself lucky.

In an age when email has become such an integral tool for correspondence, we must remember to take great care in our phrasing and construction of each as the consequences can be harsh. We have all dealt with a "Keyboard Warrior" at one time or another. (Shout out to Jen Gaunt from Bayshore for teaching me that term.)

Effective written communication takes time and skill since such a small portion of our communication is contained in the words themselves. In this workshop we will discuss the importance of writing style; memo and e-mail writing tips; and the importance of careful proofreading and revision. We will also explore how to write clear, professional, effective e-mail messages. Participants will learn how to write concise, descriptive subject lines and to state their purpose clearly at the beginning of each message. The smallest details do much to convey tone and courtesy. This workshop goes beyond other topics which include salutations, closings and the traditional rules of grammar.

This is a workshop that is incredibly important for novice teachers...Not that some seasoned teachers could not benefit from this as well.

As always with any workshop, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with MTEA members across the district. You will make new friends and contacts with which you can join forces to foster a more collegial and productive work environment.

Presentation of your school ID will be required for entry.
