Curriculum Consulting and Writing

 

I have developed scores of curricula for pre-K-8th grade that teach students health and wellness (self-nourishment and, ultimately, self-care) through a heightened awareness of food and its properties via cooking. Some, like my Food Science series, specifically hone science skills (in biology, botany, chemistry and physics), while others, like The Art of Cooking refine art skills (using different media, working with composition, materials and color). All apply basic math skills (including measurement, fractions, addition, subtraction and multiplication). I work with administrators, developing new curricula and materials (including recipes, worksheets, stories) and teaching them best-practice logistics of working with food and cooking in the classroom or lab.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

I’m very impressed by all the elements you are able to pack into the lesson without it seeming at all overwhelming: the review, the actual cooking skills, the creativity of coming up with their own dishes, the chance to present their creations, the opportunity to learn about and share thoughts on something else (in last week’s case, the feelings represented in the book), the execution of their  jobs, the responsibility for one’s station/implements and the overall following of directions…..all without losing the fun quotient. No wonder the kids love coming!  You’ve really created something special so kudos to you!
