The type of assignment most likely to be e-mailed would be
a piece of writing--either for an issue of our magazines (for your editor
to work on while you are absent), or some other type of writing assignment
to be turned in while you are gone. Things like KBAR and reading study
questions go in your notebook, so they would be inappropriate for e-mail.
Another good use would be for those
of you with Macs to send
your work in via e-mail. That way, you can use your computer instead of
an AlphaSmart, and we still have your work in the proper format!
The most reliable way to e-mail work is to copy and
paste it into the e-mail message. This makes sure I can actually
read it no matter what you used to create it. However, if you have formatting
or fonts you want, you might want to send it as an attachment:
Make sure you are using Microsoft Word or Works for creating
VERY IMPORTANT!! Make sure you save
your document as a Rich Text Format--RTF. When you first save your
document ("save as" if you've already started it), use the little drop-down
arrow next to the "save as type" box, and choose RTF.
To send your work as an e-mail attachment:

Windows 95 machine, it will probably be found in "My Documents." Click
