Assignment 1

We are going to spend a lot of time together next year, so it’s best if we get a head start on learning a bit about you.

Your first digital assignment is to successfully send an email to your AP Biology teacher.

 Due date: Fri., May 24, 2013.  Draft an email to me following these rules:

 a.            Use clearly written, full sentences. Do not abbreviate words like you are on AIM with a friend. Use spell check! This is a professional communication like you would have with a college professor, so let’s practice for your rapidly nearing future!

b.            Address it to me at

 c.            Make the Subject: “AP Bio: Introduction to <Insert Your Name Here>” (Do not include the quote marks or the brackets, just the words)

d.            Begin the e-mail with a formal salutation, like “Ms. Mathew,” or “Dear Ms. Mathew,”

e.            Now introduce yourself (your name) and tell us a little bit about yourself, like:

  • What do you like to do (hobbies, sports, music, interests, etc.)?
  • Do you have a job?
    • Tell me a little bit about your family (Mom? Dad? Guardian? Siblings? Pets?)What do your parents do for a living?
    • Was there anything that you liked about your earlier biology class?
    • What was the last book you read for fun?
    • What are you looking forward to the most in AP Biology?
    • What are you most anxious about in AP Biology?

f.      End the e-mail with a formal closing: “Cordially”, “Sincerely”, “Warm regards”, etc. and add your name as if you signed a letter.
