Email assignment | English homework help


This assignment builds on the following scenario:

Imagine that you are a new employee working for a large corporation. You have been on the job six months when your best friend suddenly announces she is getting married next weekend, on a whim. Unfortunately, the day and time that the wedding is taking place are unconventional: next Friday at 11:00 a.m. As a result, you will need to ask for the whole day off.

Your boss has agreed to give you a day off on the condition that you get someone to cover your shift and meet with clients during your absence. After checking the work schedule for next week, you notice that your co-worker who works down the hall, Alice, has the day booked off. You would consider Alice an acquaintance rather than a friend, so you are not sure what her plans were for her day off.

You know that Alice is a fan of classical music. You also know that the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is giving a special series of classical performances from next Friday to Sunday that Alice might be attending. Write an email to Alice asking her to take your shift next Friday.

General Tips:

  • Be sure to read Chapters 2-5 in our textbook before starting this assignment.
  • Remember to set up your document as if it were an actual email: you must include To, From, Date, and Subject headers.
  • Be very careful about establishing an appropriate tone, and selecting necessary information.
  • Analyze your audience, and consider your purpose carefully.
  • Use positive language as much as possible and ask yourself how you would react if you were the recipient. It is a good idea to read your message out loud, in order to gauge its impact and overall tone.
  • Remember that less is often more in situations such as this. Work on conciseness.
  • Proofread carefully: you will be graded on spelling and mechanics, tone and style, grammar, format, and content. Regardless of the content of your email, I cannot pass an assignment that has significant problems in these areas.
  • Be creative! You are expected to make up plausible details.
  • Finally, avoid simply cutting and pasting information from the scenario into your email.
