Hand out to the students the Pre-Test. Confirm to the students that this test is to see what they know or don't know from what they learned in Foods I. The test will be corrected at the end of the hour, but it will not be graded. The test can be used as a resource or reference for information that they should know or can be used later in the class.
Read and explain the format with the students on what they are to do on the different sections of the test. Allow the students adequate time to complete the test.
Orally, correct the test and go over the answers together. I like to have the students write in the correct answers as it is being corrected. Explain in detail any concept that they do not understand.
Hand out the study sheet for the first test. The students will need to know this information for the test. Identify the test date.
With what time is left at the end of class, pass out the Cooking Term II Crossword Puzzle that they can work on together in their groups or by themselves. Identify the date that it will be corrected.
