Some things are so familiar to us that we forget that they may not be familiar to everyone! Students will at first write very simple directions, assuming that their teacher knows the basics of how to make a sandwich. When it becomes obvious that they need to be very specific, they get to practice their instructional skills. For an illustration of this lesson, see this video here.
