Here's an email that I sent to all of my students in one of my classes:
This is a spot check to:
- See if you are checking your [Name of College] email regularly.
- Maintaining your inbox.
- Remind all of you that if you send me an email from an address other than your [Name of College] email account, I will ignore it (per syllabus).
- Please reply to this message no later than September 19th, 2007.
Good afternoon professor. Thank you for checking in. Have a good afternoon.
Am I crazy or could the whole "Thank you for checking in" from a student to a teacher be mistaken for sarcasm? I got a good laugh from this.
