A Starter exercise

Written by Elle

QUESTION: How do you tie a shoe lace?

You will need your phone or watch to set a timer for this exercise, you will also need a pen/pencil and some paper.


I want you to mind map, list, or bullet point the process of tying your shoe laces…

  • Imagine you are teaching an alien who has never even seen a shoe before, what content do you need to include to help them learn how to tie the laces on a show?
  • Define each step you need to go through and think about the detail
  • Break it down clearly into stages
  • Elaborate on these steps to explain how you do the step


Now, I want you to turn the process into instructions & make a plan for how you would share these instructions…Make a note about:

  • How will you communicate explaining the process of tying your shoe laces? Is it verbal, written, or diagrams?
  • Do you need supporting materials, props, images or videos?
  • What resources would you need to help someone learn? eg a shoe
  • How will you break down each stage to be clear and supportive?
  • How long will it take to teach?
  • What would you do if someone doesn’t learn how to tie their shoe laces fro your tutorial? How would you deal with that?
