Planned By: Helen Bishop

In pairs or small groups, students will:

Practice the cooking vocabulary from using the QUIA.com website by doing the vocabulary game activities that they actually made last year. http://www.quia.com/pages/hbishop/page9

Using Miro to prepare the videos for presentation, Watch YouTube French cooking demonstration videos as a class and discuss. http://www.getmiro.com/ (Ex: Kid cooking demo - A French class assignment:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1wlQ8IwUo4 , cooking chicken curry in north of France –stop at 3:30. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl0yJe4jMnA )

Locate, choose and transcribe a simple French recipe using the .fr websites we have previously used. (ex: http://www.recette2cuisine.fr/22-gateau-au-chocolat.html )

Create a numbered list of sentences, listing the procedure of the recipe.

Rehearse the sentences aloud, with peers, small group, native speaker community volunteers, and teacher. Rubric.

Gather the ingredients and materials. Create setting and costumes, if appropriate.

Rehearse the sentences with the demonstration of the recipe. Think Julia Child cooking show!

Film the demonstration with flip camera. Students film each other.(I bought chef hats and 2 white aprons for the students to wear, online.)

Edit and present the video.
