Simply Great Cooking Instruction. A Manual for Teaching Cooking to Non-Reading Students.
This manual presents a method of teaching cooking to nonreaders. The language of the method consists of visual symbols, such as drawings of bowls, spoons, and ingredients, and color. The "Simply Great" method consists of three basic formats: the one-step booklet, the full-page format, and the simply written for the student with some reading abilities. Chapter 1 describes how to color code the kitchen. Chapter 2 describes the full-page format method and lists the nine steps for converting a recipe into a visual form. Two examples, for an egg salad sandwich and for three-bean salad, are included. Chapter 3 describes the one-step booklets and includes two examples, a banana milk shake and jiggle giggle gelatin. Chapter 4 describes the simply written format and includes three examples: pumpkin bread, baked fresh fish, and carrot salad. The appendix provides five pages of symbols for tracing or photocopying.
