Practicing order of events by writing a recipe
« on: March 21, 2019, 09:46:03 AM »
This activity is meant for advanced beginner/low intermediate adults. The topic focus would be a on food. This is a writing task but it does have a listening component.


Pre-writing activity:
1. Do you cook with written recipes? If not, how do you cook?
2. Do you have a favorite thing to make? What is it?


Watch this video of Chef John cooking Macaroni and Cheese https://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2019/03/instant-mac-and-cheese-thinking-outside.html. Look at his list of ingredients, are any of the ingredients unfamiliar to you? 


Writing activity:


With your partner, write the instructions for the recipe step by step. You may watch the video as many times as you want. DO NOT copy exactly what he says - use your own words. If you have trouble understanding what Chef John is saying please let the teacher know.


Post writing activity:
Find a recipe in English online to follow and bring that dish to our IEI potluck tomorrow!

I love how your created an activity for lower level students. This is also something that is very useful and practical. I like how you used mac and cheese as this is such an 'iconic American food', and bringing the dish to a potluck is SUPERB!

This activity reminded me of when I gave a 3-minute presentation on how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in Korean. At that time, I was was low intermediate. So I think this activity would be great with your target audience.
