Transcript of Copy of PROCEDURE TEXT

design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
1. Texts that explain how something works or how to do something
The Purpose?
To tell the reader how to do or make something; to describe something which is accomplished through a sequence of action or steps.
Types of Procedural Texts
There are different procedural texts according to the purpose of the text, such as:

• Texts that explain how something works or how to use instruction/operation manuals, for example, how to use the video, the computer, the tape recorder, the photocopier, the fax.
• The reader is often referred to in a general way, ie. pronouns (you ).
• Action verbs (imperative verbs), (cut, fold, twist, hold etc).
• Simple present tense (you cut, you fold, you mix).
• Linking words to do with time (first, when, then) are used to connect the text.
• Detailed information on how (carefully, with the scissors); where (from the top); when (after it has set) .

2. Texts that instruct how to do a
particular activity e.g. recipes,
rules for games, science experiments,
road safety rules.
3. Texts that deal with human behavior,
e.g how to live happily, how to succeed
• Goal - clearly stated (often in the heading). • Materials - listed in order of use.

• Method - the steps are chronological and are numbered or listed.
Generic Structure

The information is presented in a logical sequence of events which is broken up into small sequenced steps. These texts are usually written in the present tense. The most common example of a procedural text is a recipe.
• Detailed information on how (carefully, with the scissors); where (from the top); when (after it has set) .
• Detailed factual description (shape, size, colour, amount).
• Focuses on generalized people rather than individuals (first you take, rather than first I take).

• Games instructions usually include instructions on how to play, rules of the game, method of scoring, and the number of players
• Scientific experiments usually include the purpose of the experiment, equipment, procedure, observations and conclusion.
• Recipes usually have the information presented in at least two basic groups: ingredients and method.
