ENG 1L/2L/3E

Today, you will attempt to write instructions for a simple task that you know how to do. The task can be anything that has multiple steps. Here are some possibilities:

  • how to tie your shoes
  • how to download an app
  • how to apply makeup
  • how to draw a human figure
  • how to make Kraft dinner
  • how to get School to Community from this classroom

How to do it:

  • include at least 7 steps (does this seem like a lot? Think of all of the small steps you may have missed…)
  • break down each step clearly and effectively
  • use direct languages and short sentences. This is not the time for long, descriptive sentences; still, remember that you still have to fully explain the steps!

Tomorrow, we will test the quality of your instructions by actually using them to complete tasks.
