About this Grantee

To provide students with a more meaningful literary experience and increase exposure to other cultures, Ms. Golden and Ms. Gee implement a food-based reading project. Students read novels about different cultures and research recipes that represent each culture to contribute to a class book. Compiling their research, students make presentations about the connections between the recipe and the novel and write stories, essays, and poetry about the food. Students complete a group research project based on their novel and present it to their parents along with the class video diary.
