Dear Maggie,

I am writing this email because I want to apologize.  I am ashamed of myself for how I treated you yesterday.  When you presented in front of the class, I laughed at your presentation, and I could see that you were very embarrassed.  I was in a bad mood yesterday because I failed our math exam, but I blame myself for taking it out on you.  Your presentation was actually really good, and you should be proud of yourself.  I did not know anything about Mars before your presentation and I learned a lot!   The video you showed was very amusing.

I hope that you can forgive me.  Next time I am in a bad mood, I will not punish you for it.



Dear Ryan,

Thank you for writing.  You really hurt my feelings yesterday.  I spent weeks researching Mars and working on the presentation and I was excited to show it to the class yesterday because I was really proud of myself!  When you laughed at me, I was upset with you —no, I was furious with you.  However, I do appreciate your apology, and I forgive you. 

I’m sorry that you failed the math exam—it was so difficult!  What did you think about the history exam?
