Fayette County Community Action Agency, Inc., Uniontown, PA.; Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
Utilizing 1991-92 Pennsylvania Department of Education Section 353 Special Demonstration Project Funding, the Fayette County Community Action Agency, Inc. Education Center conducted a cookbook and stories project. It was designed to encourage English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students to maintain their cultural heritage while learning about that of other groups. The project involved students in various adult education programs throughout the county. Students submitted recipes and stories related to their ethnic background and discussed them in class. They were exposed to word processing techniques and composed artwork to accompany the recipes and stories. The curriculum focused on sharing and strengthening ethnic parts of the community in order to increase cultural awareness and community outreach. Recipes from all counties were solicited with the aid of the local library and a nursing home to help generate a multi-ethnic, multi-level text. Final drafts of the cookbook were completed by the Adult Basic Education/General Education Diploma (ABE/GED) classes at the Fayette County Prison. The project cookbook, "Community Cookbook," is attached. Also included is the "Adult Enrichment Center International Cookbook, 1989-90" from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Adult Enrichment Center, which includes a multilingual glossary.
