Reflection: Student Ownership Procedural Text: Recipe - Section 3: Sharing Recipes


Students really enjoyed writing the recipes.  They now understand the features in procedural text.  Starting with something they are familiar with like writing recipes made the concept easier to explain.  One student took an example from our lesson on a recipe of Milo (a drink similar to chocolate shake popular in Latin cultures) and personalized it.  He called it "Milo My Way" and shared his version of the  Milo Recipe with the class.  This is a great example of a student taking ownership of this concept.
