Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise February 10, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: The How-To.

Today we'll work with the good old 'how-to' genre. Write a 'list poem' that explains various ways how-to do something.

Today's how-to is...

How to... remember which (numerically) a lesser-known president is.

Browse this list of interesting facts about the presidents, pick one that isn't celebrated on President's Day and isn't from the last 30 years. Once you have the president picked out, read a little more about him. Come up with a couple convoluted ways to remember which number the president is (potentially even nonsense, in fact, I encourage one or two items on your how to list of ways that are presented confidently even though the rationale does not make logical sense). If at all possible, come up also with a reasonable way to remember which number that president is for the last list item.
