Pizza and more
Hi. I teach ESL & Speech/Language. I needed a new approach for working
on writing skills and vocabulary development with my 6th graders, so
I got them involved in a project to create their own pizza & commercial.
The students were each given their own pizza parlor/company name, and
had to create lists of vocab words to describe the pizza served at
their establishment, something that no other place would have. This
inspired group discussions about the "ultimate" pizza. They
used consummer information (from other students)to generate numerous
kinds of pizza, pizza toppings, and crust ingredients that they would
serve to please their customers. The writing process put it all
together in commercial format. The students have decorated pizza boxes
with their logo, and will show them off in videotaped "commercials".
