Intended Learning Outcomes:
Give a written assignment from the classroom textbook on pies to introduce the unit to the students. I have them read Chapter 29 on Pies in The World of Food pages 529 - 542 and answer the six review questions and questions 8 - 12. They can work on this assignment after they have cleaned up their unit and are ready to evaluate their pastry experiment.
Hand out the Pie Experiment. Read it aloud and explain that the students are going to prepare this recipe according to the directions using a different variation. All of the pie crusts will be compared to the standard recipe.
Assign a different recipe to each unit. As they are preparing their recipe, walk around and take notes on how well they are following the directions.
The pie crusts will be eaten and evaluated with no filling so they can taste the actual crust and compare the flavor of the fat and note its flakiness.
After all of the pie crusts have been baked, let them cool for a few minutes. Place them on a cooling rack in the middle of their table with a table knife.
Each student will then walk around and sample each of the pie crusts and compare the appearance, texture and flavor of each and complete their chart. They will then write 2 - 3 paragraphs on what they learned from this experiment. They will be turned in before they leave to be corrected.
If there is any extra pie crust left, I will let them sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on it and eat the rest.
The students must clean up their unit before leaving. Return pie plates, pastry cloths and sockinets in their proper place or to be laundered.
