Information transfer

Design a type of information transfer task by getting the students to put the written text of a recipe or menu into pictorial form – or the converse. This task encourages deep processing of information. Your students can show that they have understood the information deeply enough to adapt it from a written to a visual form or vice versa.

As they gain confidence with the language structures associated with recipes, some of your students could write a series of instructions (in the form of cooking steps) to read to the class, while others record the steps pictorially (with keywords labelled).

Extension. An extension task would be for them to follow a recipe in Māori and share the finished dish with classmates, invited guests, and whānau.

You can facilitate a simpler information transfer task by using resource sheet 3.4 and the corresponding transcripts available online from the reomation Te mahi kai (Preparing food).
