The preliminary material for the AQA food technology specification this year is on high protein meals and cultural diets. I think its offers lots of potential to truly challenge food technology pupils around the country.
In preparation for this, I am currently preparing a series of Prezi presentations and worksheets to help prepare my pupils for this exam. This takes a lot of time to do but because I am somewhat of a teaching geek I secretly enjoy preparing resources. I am really looking forward to preparing the cultural slides as I am lucky enough to have traveled the world and experienced a wide variety of food cultures .
I also enjoy sharing my resources but I would also like to raise money for the charity Magic Breakfast while doing this.
I am currently selling four prezi presentations and all money raised will be donated to charity in memory of my friend Mairead who died after a brave battle with cancer 4 weeks ago.
The Prezi’s are on:
- Japanese food culture which includes examples of high protein dishes, video clips and images
