Ohhh. It's from when I was absent. Maybe I should write Mrs. Torry an email.
If you are ever bored or you just aren't doing anything, take a look through Aspen to see your grades. You may find find something surprising as you look through them.
What should I say in my email to Mrs. Torry?
If you do find a bad grade, like I did in my homework, find out why you have that bad grade. Maybe you just forgot or didn't want do it. Start looking through all the grades you got in that category to find the bad ones.
Dear Mrs. Torry,As I was looking through my grades, I noticed that I had a zero and a 50 from when I was absent. I just have one quick question: If I could show you the pictures, could they get raised a little bit?Thank you.Your Student,Parker Thorson
When you find the bad grades, try to remember why you got the 0%, 50% or maybe 75%. I remembered that I was absent on those days and maybe you were absent as well. If you weren't and you didn't do it, your teacher may accept very late work. Either way, you should head over to the computer and write the teacher an email.
I'm happy I did that, even if it doesn't work.
When you get to the computer, open up your email and type in your teacher's email address. Then, begin to think about what you will want to say to your teacher. Just use a simple question, like the one in the next panel.
Perfect! I'll send it now.
When you write your email, you want it to be like you are writing someone important. Do NOT shorten words like "you" to "u" and "are" to "r", as this will make this important email seem childish. Make it short and to the point and be kind: don't accuse the teacher of losing your work if you forgot it.
When you finish the email, you may feel a weight be lifted off your chest, especially if you have been thinking about the bad grade for awhile. So go to bed thinking that your email might have payed off, giving you a better grade. It did for me.
