    What are some features of a How-To?

    1. In a How-To if you are teaching someone how to bake something like a cake or cookies you have to put how much of each ingredient to use because if someone wants to make it they won’t know how to make it.

    2. You should also put what size tools to use because if you don’t then if a person wants to make something and they don’t have the right size tool when they finish making it, it will be too big or too little.

    What is the purpose of a How-To?

    The purpose of a How-To is so people can learn how to cook different kinds of foods. Also because some people want to learn how to make different kinds of art and stories and many other things because they want to teach other people how to make them.

    What is your favorite part about writing a How-To?

    My favorite part about writing a How-To is that you get to write it about anything you want.(as long as you know how to make, bake, or do it.)

    What do you like to get better at when writing a How-To?

    What I would like to get better at is knowing what kind of How-to to do because I have a hard time trying to figure out what kind of How-To to do. Because I like to know what tools and ingredients to use right away when I am doing one about making something I want to get the steps right. I like the steps.

    What are some features of a how-to?

    Some features are adding the ingredients and tools. You need tools to make the things. The ingredients are things that you eat when you make the thing.

    What is the purpose of a how-to?

    The how-to teaches you how to make something. You need to know how to get it just right. If you don’t have the how-to then you won’t get it
    right.

    Which is your favorite part about writing a how-to?Why?

    My favorite part is getting to write a how-to again and again because it lets people know how to make some things a lot. They just have to go on the computer and find the recipe.

    What would you like to be better at when writing a how-to?

    I want to improve knowing my materials. Because I sometimes forget my materials. Then if someone looks at my materials maybe they will have a problem making it.
