Food Services. Reading and Language Activities.
Kessman, William A.
Written primarily for special needs students in the exploratory phase of a vocational program in food services, this activity book employs basic content material of the food service trade to serve as a vehicle for developing reading and language skills. Each lesson follows a similar format. The lesson is introduced by an illustration and a list of key words found in the reading selection which follows. Each reading selection is followed by short answer questions (getting the main idea, getting the meaning from the context), true-false questions, sentences to complete, vocabulary-spelling exercises, and a word puzzle. The titles of the lessons are A New School; A New Shop; What to Wear; Clean Hands, Please; Setting the Table: What to Use; Dishes and Glassware: How to Hold; What Is Flatware?; How a Table Is Set; Kitchen Work; Kinds of Foods; Large Kitchen Equipment; and Small Kitchen Equipment. (The last two lessons include a number of illustrations.) (LMS)
