FOOD ACTIVITY PROJECT:
You have received your instruction sheets on this project. Keep in mind it is a 2-phase project. The first phase is written and is due Dec. 7/8 (odd-even). You must turn in the following on that date as this will be the last major grade for the semester. I will be looking for the following in my evaluation of your project:
A. DICTIONARY CONTENT - covers all items; Spanish-English translations for all food items and verbs; categorized and arranged in alphabetical order; neatness and creativity in the illustrations; spelling and grammar.
B. RECIPE - the recipe should be a prepared dish of reasonable complexity that incorporates several ingredients (8-10) and must be entirely written in Spanish. Your instructions should be in the command form and you should use the verb selection from your dictionary for the food terminology. DO NOT JUST COPY A RECIPE FROM THE SPANISH. THIS WILL RESULT IN A "0" GRADE. Your interpretation of the recipe and your original writing is what the objective is in this part of the project. You should type out your recipe or else print it very neatly. Be sure and check all spelling and grammar. The recipe will be turned in at the same time as your dictionary and will be an integral part of the grade. Please let me know if you have any questions.
