This packet contains everything you need to inspire students with a creative and unusual twist on the usual ELA final project. Using these handouts, students will brainstorm a textually themed food truck and prepare a variety of text-based elements for a class food truck festival. See the product preview to check out the fun graphic design on the handouts!
Here’s a brief rundown on what's inside the packet:
The Food Truck Project: This handout explains the two main options for the project, and should be the first one students receive.
Initial Brainstorm: This handout provides an excellent in-class activity, guiding students through their first brainstorm. Completing it in class will give students a chance to ask you their initial questions. You may wish to check this handout for a completion grade, but don’t keep it, since students will need it to finish the project.
Menu + Rationale: Using this handout, students will come up with items for their menu and explain how these items connect to the text. This could work as a class workshop or as homework, though again, just check for a completion grade.
The Crew: This handout guides students in brainstorming who might staff their truck and also gets them thinking about additional relevant details. This could work as a class workshop or as homework, though again, just check for a completion grade.
Our Food Truck Festival: This handout lays out what is required for the final project display. You may choose to give it out right away, or to wait until after the students have completed the workshop brainstorms.
Meal Tickets: Photocopy this handout for students to complete during the festival. Filling these out will help give them a purpose as they wander the festival. If you choose, you might tally these meal ticket votes and announce the top three most popular food trucks the next day, perhaps passing out prizes.
Food Truck Rubric: This is a straightforward grading rubric to make it possible to grade these many project elements in a timely manner. But of course, you could choose to grade it in any way that you wish.
