Engage students in defining what they understand pertaining to recipe

Directed Practice:

Add another recipe and provide every student with a similar copy of recipe. They should read and understand the directions and explain to their partners. This is done through group discussion. The teacher directs the discussion to examine for the level of understanding and ascertain correct interpretations (Farrell, 2002).

Independent Practice:

Students are to work in pairs / small groups. Each student is to get a recipe to read and follow the directions. These will help in advancing their knowledge in learning new vocabularies and use of prepositions in communication (Farrell, 2002). These items require very simple recipes. Complicated recipes should be avoided in order to ease understanding. Simple recipe items can entail such things as: Different kinds of food items. The lesson requires reading, understanding and explaining to their fellow students about the recipe. The teacher can supervise the class to evaluate the level of understanding, use of vocabularies and prepositions (Richard-Amato, 2009).

Evaluation of Learning:

1. Verbal in-put, use of vocabularies and prepositions

2. Reading and explaining recipe to their partners

3. Students should read and follow the guidelines of the recipe
