How to use E-mail?
Subject: Language Arts, Computers & Internet
Grade Level: 6-8
This computer lesson will enable each student to establish a free e-mail account through a MSN (Microsoft Network). Even though some students already use e-mail frequently at home, many of our students still do not have easy access, if any, to the internet.
Students will use individual e-mail accounts to compose, send, and receive e-mail messages, links, and other attached documents.
Students will establish an e-mail account by submitting an application to www.epals.com. I will assign your login name and password to protect your account. You will compose and send an e-mail to another student in the class.
Students will send an e-mail with attachment to me (such as your assignment election 2000).
Students will send a link in an e-mail. You also need to find an educational URL such as pbs.org and type it in the your e-mail to me.
Students will learn to save addresses for future use.
Students will learn to create new folders to organize their e-mail messages.
Students will learn to delete and edit e-mail messages.
