I have used this as well -- Put a safety pin on an overhead and have
groups of students write instructions on opening or closing it. Groups
should exchange papers and try to follow instructions.  I also have
students list what they need to know in order to complete the
instructions.  I used this when I was a staff development specialist and
trained management.  I have also seen this with a peanut butter and
jelly sandwich.  Messy but really funny.

I sometimes use a direction-writing assignment in developmental writing
classes. I ask students to write clear instructions for how to play a
kids' game--not one with well-known rules, but games that evolve often
in a neighborhood or family with rules passed along orally. It can help
get across the sense of how directions work from both sides--creator and
user.

Subject: [LRNASST-L] Following Directions

Does any one have any directions for following directions?  I'm trying
to put together some simple ideas (like read, reread and mark) for
students to help them better read and understand directions.

Thank you.
