For the midterm, presentations will be conducted in lieu of a traditional exam. The presentation will demonstrate the research skills of students and relevant knowledge from the course. Directions: For US I, students will be required to find an authentic recipe from the colonial period and recreate the dish from that recipe. Students will have to pick a recipe that dates to 1800 or earlier. The recipe can appear in any part of the present-day US, so it doesn’t have to be from the original 13 states. French or Spanish colonies will work, too. For this assignment, you may · Substitute ingredients where the traditional one would cost too much or are unavailable, but should make a note of this in the presentation. · Also include an ingredient when the original records are unclear and we don’t know what the modern ingredient is. Again, make a note of this in the presentation. · Prepare a Powerpoint presentation or any other type of visual. Since you will have to turn in a written component for grading, this may be turned in for that requirement. Any written form is acceptable, as long as it can be understood by the reader. · Abbreviate the oral presentation in the interests of time. Grading will be based on the written submission. The criteria for grading can be found in the assignment rubric, and we will go over it in class. Cooking ability is not graded. Grades will only be determined on the content of the research that you provide. Cite all sources. You do not have to provide Chicago Manual of Style citations, but you do need to include the source title, author (or editor), and where the source was found.
