Top Tip #6

Tip #6 – Keep it short

Postcard rather than letter – more of us are viewing email on smaller devices such as our phones. Teachers are busy, avoid too much information, simplify your message.

If your email length is out of control, try setting a mandatory length limit for all messages. Having your limit in mind before you start writing will help you keep your verbosity in check.

After you write your email, take a few minutes to read what you’ve just written. This is your chance to check for grammatical errors, cut unnecessary phrases, and rewrite sentences to be clearer.

You may think it’s efficient to include every single detail in one email, but the more questions and requests you cram in, the longer and more overwhelming your message becomes.
