Rubin Education’s book, Wait, How Do I Write This Email?, is more than a useful writing guide for people who need to network or find a job. We hope the resource becomes an integral part of the way schools and organizations teach effective communication skills.
That’s why this week the book scored a major victory. The educational team at Future Farmers of America (FFA), an “intercurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership,” elected to use two templates from the book in a lesson plan for FFA members. As well, the information will become a supplement in agribusiness and agriscience courses.
The lesson plan instructs students to write an email that asks for a reference letter and then another email to thank the person for writing the reference letter (instructions on the reference letter here). In each instance, FFA includes our templates and then asks the students to practice their own e-mails based on my model.
Bring Rubin Education to your school or organization!
