How to make a red velvet cake (Procedure Text)



Structure of a procedure

Procedures must include all the information needed to achieve the end result. If part of the procedure is missing, then it will be very difficult to achieve the end product.

Each procedure should have a title, or heading, that states what the procedure is about.

Many procedures will have a short introduction. This paragraph usually outlines the goal of the procedure.

Most procedures will have a list of equipment, materials or ingredients that are needed in order to achieve the outcome. A baking recipe, for example, will have a list of ingredients and cooking materials that are needed.

The steps of the procedure break down the process so it is easy to understand. All the steps are given in chronological order (in the order they need to be done). See image 1, 2 and 3.

Often, there is a short evaluation paragraph at the end of the procedure. This may give more information or ask questions about whether the procedure worked (such as for a science experiment).

Visual elements are important because they help the reader to better understand the procedure. Visual elements can include maps, drawings, photographs, or diagrams of the process and the end result.

Preparing a procedure

When writing a procedure it is important that you do not forget any of the steps. The best way to write an accurate procedure is to actually do the procedure and take notes about the materials you used, the order of the steps and what the final product should look like.

Always check your text for correct spelling, grammar and punctuation.
