CURRENT HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT | DUE 22ND NOVEMBER, 2018

  1. Open up your email and write a brief letter to me (staff@thecubeschool.ca)

    1. It should contain an image as an attachment

    2. A link to your favorite webpage using the special chain link icon

    3. A bullet-pointed list of your favorite things to do on a rainy / snowy day

    4. Your signature at the end, for example:
      Yours Sincerely,
      Shirley Baron

      Should be formatted in some way using the formatting tools we learnt.
      You can make it colorful, bold, underlined, or anything you like!

  2. Once you’ve sent the email, go into your sent folder on your email and print out a paper-copy to bring to class
    (This is tricky as it requires you to setup your printer - but it’s a good practice. Try your best, printers hate me too, so I understand the frustration very well!)

If you have any questions, or get stuck when approaching this homework, note it down and I’ll cover it in the next class!
