Re: "How to" writing assignment

    Ashley, A speaker at a literacy conference this week gave
    this example. She had her class survey the technological
    needs of residents of an assisted living/retirement
    center/nursing home. Then students composed step-by-step
    directions to: download photos, print docs/photos, send a
    text, etc. They published these 'tech helps' and delivered
    copies to the residents! A writing and a philanthropic
    project rolled into one!
