Around the World of Food: A Curriculum Guide on Foreign Foods.
Beal, Marcia; Corvi, Elizabeth
Objectives, experiential/evaluative methods, and resources are presented in each section of this curriculum guide for a 16-week course in foreign foods. Intended for use with 11th and 12th graders, this guide gives (in historic sequence beginning with the fertile crescent) suggestions for examining the cultural as well as preparational aspects of food. It was developed to help broaden the student's knowledge in regard to: (1) Cultural information and influences on foods eaten, (2) new food tastes and experiences in food preparation techniques, and (3) terms, measurements and equivalents of different cultures. Brief generalizations are given about customs, food production, nutrition, and food preparation, (which are identified as factors that affect what people eat). (SH)
