Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Simple Procedural Text Types The social purpose of a simple procedure is to instruct. It commands readers to either do or make something.Examples of procedures can include directions, invoice list, manuals, blue prints, experiments and recipes. The goal is the part of the text structure where it is stated what is to be done, or it may outline the situation that has arisen. Materials is usually a list of what is needed to complete the task. It can include tools, instruments, utensils, ingredients, materials, parts or data. The method is often presented as a series of ordered steps. The steps might be preceded bynumbers, letters or bullets, or they might be written as connected sentences or paragraphs. Headings, subheadings, diagrams, and photographs are often used to help clarify this part of the text. Language features are the techniques that writers use to add meaning and interest to their work. Simple procedures consist of: - Nouns and pronouns such as plastic cups, wrapping paper, sticky tape, rice bubble box, cellophane, fishing line, glue and juice box. - The instructions can be written in a general way. Or they may not be mentioned at all. In the text the audience has not been mentioned. They have been given commands. - Signal words which relate to time. In the text, Melanie and Katelyn have used then and now as well as numbered steps. - It will include adjectives which are thorough and factual such as wrapped. - Adverbs which provide information on how, where and when each action is completed.- A procedure will mainly consist of action verbs. Theses verbs direct physical and descriptive actions in a procedural text. In different texts the form of action verb will be more precise. In the text examples of action verbs are:collect, get, put, cut and stick. - Procedural texts use simple present tense to express the idea of an action. The evaluation states how the success of the steps can be tested or evaluated. Sometimes the evaluation is presented as a photograph or a drawing of the completed item.
