Recipe Writing Assignment
Today you will be writing a recipe. To do this you will first need to look at some sample recipes online. Here are links to 3 recipes to consider. Look for aspects that you think are part of writing a good recipe. What do they include that draws the reader in? What makes them clear/easy to understand. Could you follow this recipe?

Once you have read through a few, take a look at the assignment below. Fill out the sections regarding the recipe you would like to share. It is likely something that you have with your own family. Likely you don’t already have a recipe from home (many homes don’t use formal recipes). This means that you will likely have to look up a recipe that is for the type of food that you like. Then you will borrow the facts from that recipe and make it your own by including your own thoughts, experiences, and ideas (likely using the template in the link below too).
Now that you have done all this work, get together with your small group to discuss what a quality recipe should have. You will create your own rubric based on the criteria that your group (and the class) come up with. If you need more inspiration, here is a link to a webpage describing how to write a quality recipe.
