This week I'm going to do "How to make a St. Bridget's Day cross" and "How to play Stuck in the Mud." Other ideas for this type of writing are science experiments, make up a new game and accompany with instructions and photographs/illustrations (this last one is great for groupwork)...
Here's a peer-assessment rubric that I have created so that pairs can evaluate one another's procedural writing pieces. Just click on the image below to view/download in Google Docs.
There are some more great free procedural writing resources at worksheetplace.com. It's definitely worth checking those out! I particularly like the transitional words list for senior classes. You could use this as part of a rubric and set it out at the start of the class - "Make sure you use at least four phrases from the transitional words list."
