Topic: Wrting Sets of Instructions

10-second review: Let students design creative ways to write sets of instructions.

Title: “Poetry, Visual Design, and the How-To Manuals: Creativity In the Teaching of Technical Writing.” KD Welch. English Journal (March 2010), 37-42.

Comment: At the high school level, students could take on the challenge of transforming the fine print on credit card instructions. But it would be fun to take manuals for anything and try to make them more readable. RayS.
