                                      Connection Paper #2

 How does a chef apply his/her culinary skills and responsibilities to running a non-profit food
                                           kitchen?

       Having spent thirteen of my fifteen Experience Hours with Wolfgang Puck at the

Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, Ca., I began to see the true passion and amount of hard work that

is associated with being a professional chef. Wolfgang not only works twelve to fourteen hours

many days, but he also works with the Chefs Who Care organization that hosts a dinner once a

month and the proceeds are donated to local food banks and charities serving the hungry.

Wolfgang told me, “I feel it is important that I work with needy people in our community. Food

is not something that should be elitist. Everyone should have access to great food” (Puck 2009).

This statement goes directly to my Essential Question, as I sat and listened to Wolfgang Puck


                                                3
                                                                                           Cleaver 2

discuss how he gives back to his community, simply because it is “all he knows how to do”, I

knew I had begun to uncover my answer.

       During my Experience Hours, I learned that in order to run a restaurant it is not all about

the food. In fact, Wolfgang says that “only about 20% of running a successful restaurant is being

a „great chef‟. The other 80% consists of being a great businessman” (Puck 2009). Wolfgang and

his business manager, Ludwig, explained how difficult it is to make a profit in today‟s economy

while still delivering a product that people want to eat. These same principles of managing

staffing, supplies, delivery mechanisms, fixed and overhead costs, taking advantage of seasonal

foods, and avoiding waste that apply to Wolfgang‟s restaurant apply to non-profit organizations

that deliver food. When I asked Mr. Puck if the same requirements applied to Chefs Who Care,

he said absolutely…even more so! “The profit margin in a restaurant is often dangerously slim,

but in a non-profit organization every single morsel is important” (Puck 2009). I then turned to

my research. Forbes magazine states that “management turnover rates run around 20% annually

for table-service restaurants, while hourly workers turn over at roughly a 150% clip” (Crane

2007). In order for any restaurant to survive, you have to be able to keep staff hired. This issue is

only amplified in the volunteer arena, where people have the same challenging working

conditions, but little or no actual pay. This quote solidified what Mr. Puck had told me, so I knew

I was heading in the right direction as I moved into the Service portion of my project.

                            Consultant Exit Interview
                            Due February 22, 2011 (English)
Your Exit Interview is the second formal interview with your Consultant. Turn in to your
English teacher, your signed and dated (by your Consultant) notes from this interview! For this
interview, you will need to create 10 new and relevant questions to ask.

Guidelines:

   1. Make sure you take your 10 questions with you to have your Consultant sign and date
      them as proof you did the interview.
   2. You do not need to write a word for word account (transcript). Write the answers or the
      main ideas as the response to your questions.
   3. Make sure your questions are relevant. You have 15 hours of Experience and 12 sources
      (research) to prepare questions that are specific and focused on finding answers to your
      Essential Question.
   4. Refer to the first semester packet for interview hints and suggestions.

Turn in:

   10 questions, typed, Standard QUEST Style (pg. 19); notes from Consultant interview; and
   Consultant signature and date on the bottom of the page.

Remember:
        You are interviewing this person as an expert on the content of their field, not their
personal or work life. Ask questions that your consultant would know from his or her expertise.
        This is your chance to impress your consultant with what you have learned about your
topic. Many students find it awkward or uncomfortable to interview an adult in the professional
world. Being prepared and organized will help to alleviate such feelings. Also, referring to areas
of research will show your background knowledge to your Consultant and make the interview go
smoother.
        You have completed somewhat extensive research on your topic, gathered your
conclusions and made connections in writing as well as presented your findings to your peers
and teachers.
        You now have the ability to ask specific, probing questions based on the work you have
completed. If you ask questions of the same depth and ignorance as your first interview, this will
seem like an exercise in redundancy. However, if you ask questions that demonstrate how much
your knowledge and interest has evolved, the interview will reveal your aptitude and dedication.
Your consultant will feel like they played an important role in your achievement. This is never
embarrassing.
        Asking your Consultant to answer your Essential Question is always a good idea!

                                       Connection Paper #3

How has America’s dependency on non-renewable energy resources created an increased need
for wetland restoration? How do the animals and humans who live in communities surrounded
                           by wetlands benefit from these efforts?

       At first it was difficult for me to find a service, then with a little help from my teacher, I

found a series of service through Save the Bay. I did a service on March 10, 2011, at Martin

Luther King Jr. Shoreline (MLK), another in Redwood City on March 17th, and my last one back

at MLK Shoreline on March 28th. My service work included digging holes and planting native

plants back into the ground where they are supposed to be and removing other plants that are not

indigenous to the shoreline. The process was fairly difficult because the soil was firm due to lack



                                                  8
of rain. The plants that we planted were: Blue Eyed Grass, Meadow Barley, and Red Fescue. In

order to complete my work, first, I had to clear a three-foot area, usually covered by grass.

Second, I took a trowel and made a hole five inches deep by two inches wide. Next, I took a pod

with the grass and put it in each hole. Then, I covered the hole with dirt with the plant inside.

Finally, I had do this three more times within four inches of each other to create a family.

       The service I did with Save the Bay was beneficial to the community because it re-

vegetates the marshlands. This service helps the community by allowing the native animals to

live in a real ecosystem that is native to them, instead of one that is human influenced. This

service relates to my essential question because the companies that use fossil fuels to create

energy also create harmful gasses. The oxygen that the plants make helps cleanse the air, strip

the gasses, and break them down which all create a cleaner environment. With cleaner air, the

people that have lung diseases such as asthma can start breathing easier. Also, fewer birds and

animals get sick and die, because they are not eating harmful plants. Cleaner air creates a

cleaner atmosphere that helps us all live healthier and longer lives.

               Service Project Economic Impact Analysis
                            Due March 29, 2011 (Economics)
Purpose: Determine whether the benefit you provided to the community outweighed the
personal cost of your service (time, effort etc.) through a “cost benefit analysis”. This worksheet
will help determine your contribution to the community by determining the economic impact you
made by volunteering. This may be hard to quantify, but might include the wages the
organization would have to pay an employee to do your job or the amount of money you raised
minus the cost of the workers.

Directions: Fill out the following worksheet.

Personal Impact
    What service did you perform? How long did it take you?

      What was the “opportunity cost” of your project?

Community Impact
   How many people did you affect directly with your service?

      How did your service indirectly impact the families and/or the communities of those
       directly affected?

Economic Impact
    If you did not perform this service, who would be employed to do so?

      What salary or hourly wage would that person be paid? Look up the answer in the
       Occupational Outlook Handbook. (http://www.bls.gov/OCO/). Copies are available in the
       Career Center also.

       __________ per hour, week, month, year. (Circle one)


      How much would the non-profit have paid in wages to complete your service? (Your
       hours X $________per hour)

      How many volunteers does your non-profit “demand”? Does the “supply” of volunteers
       available meet that demand?

      Who would perform these services for communities if the volunteers did not exist?

Cost Benefit Analysis
    Did the benefit to the community outweigh your personal cost?

                             Documenting your Service
                               Due April 5, 2011 (Economics)

All QUEST Service Projects are unique, therefore, one common form for all students to use to
document their work has been found to be ineffective. Every senior must complete the QUEST
Service Verification Form and you must also choose to document your work in one of the ways
listed below. Remember, having multiple forms of documentation is always best!

Step #1
Complete the QUEST Service Verification Form (Page 11 of this packet). Submit one copy of
the form to your Government/Economics teacher (this copy of the form must end up in your final
QUEST binder) and one to Mr. Lewis to apply toward the 40 hours you need for graduation.

Step #2
Pick one or more of the following forms of documentation and ask your service supervisor:
       If you can take pictures or video footage of you working with the community during your
       service. You must use these during your Power Point presentations.
      To write you a letter (written on the non-profit organization‟s letterhead) detailing what you did
       and how your work benefited a group within our community. You can scan this letter into your
       Power Point presentations and include a copy in your QUEST binder. Make sure the letter
       contains contact information and the total number of service hours you completed.
      If you can collect examples of work you did with the community. For example, if you are
       working with an after school tutoring program, ask to make a copy of a student‟s work during
       your first session and one during your last session to show the student‟s improvement. You can
       scan this work into your Power Point presentations and include a copy in your QUEST binder.
       Make sure to remove or cover the any students’ names.
      To complete a Service Learning Form (found in Room 25 with Mr. Lewis) to document the
       number of hours you spent working for the organization. You can submit this form to so the
       hours can apply toward the 40 you need for graduation. Don‟t forget to make a copy first!
      If they have alternate ideas for you to use for documentation. You must get your Gov/Econ
       teacher‟s approval if you are not going to submit one of the other four types of documentation.

Step #3
Incorporate your documentation into your presentations and binder. A copy of your QUEST
Service Verification Form and any letters or pictures you receive must be placed in your final
QUEST binder. During your Service and Testimony presentations, you should incorporate any
pictures or sample work you have received. Please make sure to describe/refer to any letters that
you receive as documentation for your service activities during these presentations as well.

Remember, regardless of the type of documentation you receive, it must be clear that you did the
activities that were approved in your Service Plan. As you discuss your service during your
presentations, your audience should be able to match your Service Plan activities with whatever
documentation you offer as proof of their completion.

              Abstract with Answer to Essential Question
                      Due March 29, 2011 (English/Economics)

You have now completed a variety of work relating to your social issue. And for that, you
should be proud. You should also be able to answer your Essential Question in your own words.
You will be writing a complete and organized answer to your Essential Question. This answer
will become the conclusion section of your QUEST Final Paper. (See outline for final paper)

Directions:

   1. Look at your Essential Question. Notice that it contains multiple parts, and cannot be
      answered with a list. It will then require a well-planned and multi-part answer. Read over
      it a few times.
   2. Now, brainstorm all the possible parts and ideas needed to fully answer this question.
      Make a thought-web or an outline. Be sure that each part of your answer can be
      supported with further explanation. You should be able to do this without consulting
      your notes, research, or past essays. You KNOW the information.
   3. Now, write a multi-paragraph answer to your essential question. In the first
      paragraph, be sure to remind your reader of your Essential Question, but avoid saying
      “My Essential Question is …” Each paragraph of your answer should be focused and
      supported, but should not include any new information, statistics, or quotations. These
      details will be included in the body of your QUEST Final Paper.
   4. In the last paragraph of your answer, explain how this project helped you and what it
      taught you about yourself and the world in which we live.

Your English teacher and your Government/Economics teacher will grade your answer to your
Essential Question for the following:

ORGANIZATION: The answer is multi-paragraph, each with a focus and explanation.

COMPLETENESS: Your answer addresses ALL parts of your Essential Question using
academic language and does include the Essential Question in the first paragraph.

Word count: 250 words minimum

Formatting: Standard QUEST Style – pg. 19

QUEST heading required

                            QUEST FINAL PAPER
                     Due April 12, 2011 (English, turnitin.com)

Now that your research, experience, and service portion have been completed, it‟s time to
synthesize your new knowledge and provide a complete answer to all parts of your Essential
Question. This QUEST Final Paper will be a written 6-10 page research paper with an emphasis
on your findings and how you as a person have evolved in pursuit of your QUEST. A 6-10 page
paper will have about 1800-3000 words (note: the 6-10 pages does not include your Cover Page
or Works Cited).

FORMAT:
   Typed, double spaced, 12 size font in either Times New Roman or Arial. Use black ink
    only. (Do not include an extra space between paragraphs in order to meet the minimum
    page requirement.)
   1 inch margins (top, bottom, left & right.)
   A title page with your name in the upper right corner, Essential Question in the middle,
    English teacher and Econ teachers‟ names in bottom right corner. [NOTE: Since you
    have a title page, you do not use Standard QUEST Format for the first page of your
    paper. You still use MLA format, but no 1st page heading.]
   A works cited page using MLA format citing all works used in the paper (if you didn‟t
    quote or paraphrase it, don‟t cite it.)
   The title and works cited pages DO NOT COUNT toward the page requirement.
   You will need to use a minimum of eight (8) citations in the body of your paper.

THE PASSING FINAL PAPER WILL INCLUDE:
   An answer to your high-quality, mechanically perfect Essential Question.
   Relevant research in the topic area directly pointing to a solution to the Essential
     Question. (Including but not limited to Consultant interviews, book, periodical and online
     research.)
   The author‟s (your) viewpoint or stance and the ability to stay focused on the answer.
   The relevancy of your service component to the furthering of knowledge in the topic
     area.
   A conscientious effort to deliver a high quality piece of writing showing the 12th grade

Topic
    Define your topic- use RFI research to clarify topic to your reader.
    Why did you choose this topic?
    Why is it important to you, and what drew you to formulate your final ESSENTIAL
      QUESTION?
    State your ESSENTIAL QUESTION (this acts like your Thesis Statement; put the EQ in
      italics.)


Body:
(Following are the chronological components of your QUEST project. This is not necessarily a
recommended outline for your paper (a chronological approach will often get repetitive.) Some
of the best Final Papers are not written chronologically, but idea based (then show how that idea-
or element of your EQ - was answered throughout the process of your QUEST project.)

Research:
    Highlight at least two useful sources
    What was important about this particular source that made you choose it?
    How was it useful?
    Link the quote(s) to some other aspect of your project and then CONNECT it to the
      answer of your EQ. How did it help to reform your question?
    How did you perform your research? What would you have done differently or better?
    Include quotes in this section.

Consultant Interviews:
    Who did you interview? Where? When?
    Why did you interview this person; ask this person to be your consultant?
    Link the quote(s) to some other aspect of your project and then CONNECT it to the
      answer of your EQ.
    How did this help answer/change the question?
    How did you perform the interview process? What could you have done more effectively
      if anything?
    Include quotes in this section.
Experience Hours:
    Who did you do your experience hours with; in what ways did your Consultant help you?
      Where did you do them?
    What specific activities did you participate in to help you answer your EQ?
    What important knowledge or skills did you gain?




                                               15
      Link the activities you participated in to some other aspect of your project and
       CONNECT them to the answer of your EQ.
      Do you think your time was well spent here or could it have been used more effectively?
       What was your performance like? What would you have done differently?
      Include quotes in this section.

Service Project:
    What did you do? Who did you serve?
    What non-profit organization did you work for/with?
    What did your activities have to do with your topic, and how well did it relate to your
       QUESTION?
    What specific, preexisting need in the community did you fill through your
       project/activities?
    How did you know there was a need for your service?
    Which service activity did you enjoy the most? Why?
    Link the activities you participated in to some other aspect of your project and
       CONNECT them to the answer of your EQ.
    How did you benefit (or help) others with your project? How did you benefit your
       community?
    What would you have done differently, better?
    Include quotes in this section.

Conclusion: THE ANSWER TO YOUR ESSENTIAL QUESTION
    Restate your Essential Question (put your EQ in italics.)
    Connecting all aspects of your project (research, experience, and service), thoroughly
      answer of your entire Essential Question. [Remember: if there are three parts to your EQ,
      then your answer should specifically address all three parts!]
    In what ways did this project help you? [These last two questions are your Personal
      Growth if you have not been including it throughout your paper…so don‟t neglect these!]
    What did this project teach you about yourself?

Works Cited page:
   MLA Format
   At least 6 different sources listed (Consultant interviews only count as one source even
     though you interviewed them two separate times.)
   At least 4 different types of sources listed.

                                      The Testimony
                                     May 25 and 26, 2011

   1. Realize you‟ve done all the work; now is the time to show off. Remember that your panel
      wants you to pass. Give them a reason to do it!
   2. Bring 5 outlines for your panel. It‟s better to have extras (and don‟t forget to keep one
      for yourself!)
   3. Bring your QUEST binder (without #2 and #3 YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED
      TO PRESENT)
STRUCTURE:
   12-20 MINUTE TIME FRAME
   Professional attire
   PowerPoint presentation
   Visuals: display boards, brochures, photos, surveys, etc.
Here are some tips!
    BE ON TIME!!! In fact, be at your assigned Testimony site 25 minutes early.
    Dress professionally; it‟s on the rubric.
    Have a good, attention getting intro, AND DON‟TFORGET TO SAY WHO YOU ARE!
      (first AND last names)
    Do not conclude your presentation with “and that concludes my presentation.” Think of
      something a little more original…leave your panel with some advice? Humor? A famous
      quote?
    On the rubric one of the categories is “uses smooth transitions.” State clearly what piece
      you are presenting. Is it service? Experience? Research? If you are making reference to
      something previously said make sure you let your panel know.
    Make sure to refer to your visuals…display board? Book? Photos? Letters? Weave these
      into your presentation instead of using them as an afterthought (Oh, yeah, these are
      pictures of stuff I did. Bye)
    BREATHE! When stressed, we often forget to do this…it helps immensely to take a deep
      breath just before you begin your presentation. And during. And after.
    Make strong, friendly eye contact with all of your panelists. If one of your favorite
      teachers is on your panel, do not give your entire presentation to him/her.
    Practice! The first time give your QUEST presentation should NOT be while giving your
      Testimony.
ATTIRE:
You will need to be dressed appropriately for your testimony. Specifically, you are to be wearing
“business” attire.

For the gentlemen: long sleeve button down shirt, tie, nice dress slacks, dress shoes – a suit, or
blazer is often a nice touch (but not required). NOT acceptable: tennis shoes, jeans, tee shirts,
scruffy or dirty clothes. No baggy pants; or, if they‟re baggy, wear a belt!




                                                 17
For the ladies: a dress, skirt and blouse, dress shoes, dressy pant suit/outfit. NOT acceptable:
tennis shoes, jeans, tee shirts, scruffy or dirty clothes, slinky tops, too short of a skirt/dress.
You‟re dressing for business, not a night on the town. If you are in doubt as to whether
something is appropriate attire – ask your QUEST teacher!

EVALUATION:
You will complete your testimony and then step outside. The panelists will discuss your
presentation and assign a “pass” or “fail.” If you have passed, go celebrate! If you have not
passed, you will be given the exact reasons in writing the following day. On that written
evaluation there will be a REDO date and time (approximately one week later). There is ONE
REDO opportunity.

GRADING:
See Testimony Rubric for grading specifics – page 21.




                                                  18
                                      Standard QUEST Style

        All QUEST papers should be formatted the same (unless specific formatting directions

are given for that style of paper). Below are the formatting directions to be followed exactly on

all papers.

   Text: 12-point font, either Times New Roman or Arial; double space lines; indent 1/2-inch
    at the beginning of each new paragraph.

   Page Setup: 1-inch margins (top, bottom, left, and right); create a header (1/2-inch from the
    top and flush with the right margin) that has your last name and each page, numbered
    consecutively (including page 1).

   In the upper left-hand corner of the first page, on separate lines list your name, your
    instructors‟ names (English first, then History), the course, and the date. Again, be sure to use
    double-spaced text.

   Double space after the date and center the title of the paper. Don't underline or italicize your
    title or put it in quotation marks; write the title in Title Case, not in all capital letters. Double
    space again and center your Essential Question. Your Essential Question should be single-
    spaced and in italics. Double space again between your Essential Question and the first line
    of text.

              How does a chef apply his/her culinary skills and responsibilities to areas
                                    outside his/her occupation?
