FORT MCMURRAY COMPOSITE HIGH SCHOOL Foods 10-20-30 Room 278 (MINERS DINER) Ms. Connie Spacek Semester 1, 2010/11 Tel: 743-5800 ext. 126 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org In Foods our goal is the completion of five 1-credit courses. FOD 1010 is a prerequisite for any other Foods credits; therefore, students must obtain a grade of 50% in this module before continuing with any further modules. It is possible to complete more than 5 credits depending on individual student motivation to do so. If there is insufficient evidence (incomplete bookwork and missed labs) for any particular course the credit will not be granted until the missing work is made up. As students are in the process of learning culinary concepts they will be building their knowledge base in ways that do not necessarily result in an immediate mark. For more information about the formative assessment in Foods please contact the instructor. See below for the breakdown of their summative mark for each 1 credit course.

Some assignments in the course will be formative which help you retain the vital information you will require for the summative final quiz, as well as, for the kitchen labs. Although only some assignments are a weighted portion of the course, if you do not complete all tasks there could possibly be insufficient evidence that the course outcomes have been met. The credit will then not be granted. Lab Days Students will be cooking Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday providing that assignments are up to date. Advanced students will have to have their group’s recipe/grocery order submitted to me the Friday before the lab day. They will not be able to cook if this is not received. Non-kitchen days will be spent either planning their cooking labs, working towards completing their bookwork/assignments, tackling kitchen duties or other activities designed by the instructor. Proper attire must be worn on cooking days. No open toed shoes, hats, spaghetti strap shirts, tank tops or extra bulky tops will be allowed in the kitchen. Basic Competencies Attendance, preparedness, participation and teamwork are vital for successful completion of this course. Class begins when the bell rings, therefore arriving late may mean missing a fun game, interesting food clip, etc. Chronic lateness (five lates) will result in phone calls home and referral to the office for disciplinary measures. Missed labs must be made up after school (or other approved arrangements). No marks will be taken off for late labs as long as they are completed. Written work for the 1st module must be completed before the next module is started, and may require completion as homework. Extra Help Students requiring extra help can make arrangements with me on an individual or group basis.
