In this assignment, you will write a set of instructions using one of several instructor-provided scenarios*. The instructions must include visual elements to augment the text. The goal of this assignment is to write clear and concise steps that can easily be followed by a novice. Before starting this assignment, please review the following learning materials:
- Catrambone, R. (1990). Specific versus general procedures in instructions (Links to an external site.). Human-Computer Interaction, 5(1), 49-94.
- Hailey, D. (2014). Baywood’s Technical Communications Series: ReaderCentric writing for digital media: Theory and practice (Links to an external site.)(Chapter 9, Writing User-Centric Content)
This activity allows you to practice all of the module outcomes:

- Conducting a project completion review, including evaluating effectiveness
- Determining whether to lease or buy new equipment (industry and type of equipment is your choice)

Write a complete set of instructions, including appropriate visual aids. You can use whatever visual aids you feel are most appropriate for your specific scenario, but make sure they help your intended readers. Follow the best practices you have learned in this module for writing instructions, but feel free to be a bit creative. Be sure to apply appropriate rhetorical appeals for textual and visual elements, as we discussed in M7D1 and M7D2.
Your instructions should be at least 15 steps, and at least one visual element is required. If you do not create the visual element yourself, you must cite the source appropriately to avoid copyright infringement issues. If you have questions about whether or not your illustration is appropriate, please contact your instructor.
