Teaching Tip: Giving Written Directions


Here are some ideas to incorporate when providing written directions for assignments.
  • Write directions as logical steps that students should follow to complete an assignment. Separate each step.
  • Make your directions very specific.
  • Be as brief as possible.
  • Provide examples where appropriate.
  • Go over the direction orally with your students.
  • Have students restate the directions to be sure they understand them.
