Simplified Letter Style in a Business Letter

1) Write a business letter using the "simplified letter style." Address it to your instructor and explain why you are taking this course and how it, and your education, will help you reach your career goals. After your peer editor reviews it and you write the final draft, it should have no errors and be formatted correctly.

2) Write an inter-office memorandum addressed to Mark Smith who is your new subordinate at work. You are to explain to him how emails can often create miscommunication. Suggest ways to handle his email at work so as to minimize mistaken correspondence and/or miscommunication. After your peer editor reviews it and you write the final draft, it should have no errors and be formatted correctly.

3) Create a tip sheet to outline appropriate use of formal letters, inter-office memos, emails, handwritten notes, one-to-one personal contact, meetings, and the telephone. What situations and roles require the level of formality in the above types of communication? Consider how effective (does it work?) the format is, as well as how efficient (does it reach the appropriate parties using minimal resources of time, money etc?).
