Be polite and never place blame on the professor.
Be polite, and never place blame on your professor or his class. Instead, use only “I” statements. Your grade is your responsibility, but your professor could cut you some slack depending on how dedicated you have proven yourself to be in his class.
Don’t email your professor asking (or complaining) about your grades. If you want to discuss the grade you have received on an assignment, make an appointment with your professor or stop by during office hours. Also, don’t email your professors asking if they have finished grading a particular assignment.
Good morning Professor* [Last name], I hope all is well. I know you have lots of things going on, but I just wanted to remind you that [whatever you are reminding of] is due/needed by [date]. Thank you again for taking time to complete [request].
Like a formal letter, an email should start with a salutation, followed by an explanation of why you are writing, and end with a closing and your name. Using correct punctuation and spelling will also go a long way toward showing your teacher that you take your schoolwork seriously.
Write your full name at the beginning and then create a polite ask. For example, you can start with the words, “I would appreciate it if you could explain to me some things about my grades in your class”. Then describe your concerns shortly. Try to be very specific to make a respectful and polite concern.
Always fill out the subject title correctly: “Missed paper deadline,” “Late assignment submission,” with your full name and your class and section information. This way your teacher will know who is writing and why. Ask permission to meet in person if necessary to set up another due date for your assignment.
If a teacher was scolding a student by using profane language, then that teacher could be fired for verbal harassment.
At most schools, high school teachers would not get in trouble for swearing in class unless they were swearing AT the students. As long as the swearing is a part of the lesson or is in normal conversation, the swearing is not a problem. It is considered unprofessional behavior. So, the teacher wouldn’t be arrested.
Do not use words like “gentle”, “friendly”, and “kind”. They don’t make reminders taste better but you may come across as a hypocrite. Do not send reminders as High Priority or follow the word Reminder with one or several exclamation signs.
Sample Email to Professor To Notify Them That You’re Sick
I was recently diagnosed with the flu, and I will miss class this week while I recover. I’ve attached a note from my doctor excusing me from class. I’ll make sure to stay on top of the reading, and I have a friend who can share notes from the seminar with me.
How do you ask if there is class today? If you wanted to be extra polite, you could say something like, “excuse me, I was just wondering if there is class today?” Or, “could you tell me whether we have class today?” Hi Rafaelle, The best way to make a question sound more polite is by using an “indirect question.”
You don’t so much take an Incomplete as ask for one. The procedure is pretty straightforward: you need to discuss the possibility with your instructor by the last day of class. If your instructor is willing, then the two of you will work out a plan to complete your remaining work in the course.
Subject: Letter for being absent for last two days due to fever. Respected teacher, I would like you inform you that I was absent for last two days because I was suffering from fever and unable to attend the school for two days. Kindly grant me medical leave for two days.
I am very sorry that I did not complete the (class name, like math or reading, here) homework assignment you gave us on (date). The reason I didn’t complete it was (I was busy with family stuff, sick, forgot the assignment, whatever). I’m sorry and I will make up the assignment as soon as possible. Thanks.
Swearing: school-age children and pre-teens. Children aged 5-11 years might swear to express emotions, get a reaction, or fit in socially. It’s good to talk with children about swearing. They can understand that some words hurt or offend others.
It is not illegal for a teacher to “not allow” a student to use the restroom. A teacher must manage students and their learning and more than not a student can wait for the appropriate time for a restroom break.
