Homework Assignment: 50 points
Final Review: 100 points
Layout: 50 points
Food, food, food. We eat it every day. Sometimes we relish our meals, and other times we barely notice them. Your next writing assignment is to use your senses of sight, taste, and smell to produce a most vivid description of your food.
YOUR TASK: Eat a meal at home, at a friend’s house, or at a restaurant before next class. Take notes on the items detailed below. Use vivid adjectives and phrases to describe your dining experience. These notes will help you write your review in class. [*After layout, on presentation day, you should plan on bringing one item from your review for the class to sample. So review something manageable.]
You may eat out, eat in, cook it yourself, take out, order at the cafeteria, whatever. The only requirement is that you follow the guidelines provided, and most of all, let us, your Schreiber audience taste your meal, too, good or bad! If you are not dining out, substitute “service” for whoever is putting the meal together. For instance, if your sister is cooking, she’s your chef… Have fun with the assignment! After you finish this paper, you will lay it out as well.
