Food in English-speaking countries

 

During this project, we read about food in a few English-speaking countries, especially school dinners (lunch i bamba) and finish by a written production, in which you compare (jämför) the things you’ve read with your own thoughts on food in Sweden.

 

Det kunskapskrav som kommer bedömas är:



E

I  /.../ skriftliga framställningar i olika genrer kan eleven formulera sig enkelt, begripligt och relativt sammanhängande.

C

I  /.../ skriftliga framställningar i olika genrer kan eleven formulera sig relativt varierat, relativt tydligt och relativt sammanhängande. Eleven formulerar sig även med visst flyt och i någon mån anpassat till syfte, mottagare och situation.

A

E

Eleven diskuterar översiktligt några företeelser i olika sammanhang och områden där engelska används, och kan då också göra enkla jämförelser med egna erfarenheter och kunskaper.

C

Eleven diskuterar utförligt några företeelser i olika sammanhang och områden där engelska används, och kan då också göra välutvecklade jämförelser med egna erfarenheter och kunskaper.

A

Eleven diskuterar utförligt och nyanserat några företeelser i olika sammanhang och områden där engelska används, och kan då också göra välutvecklade och nyanserade jämförelser med egna erfarenheter och kunskaper.




- Why do we do this?

 

When you read about how school meals work and what people eat in other countries, you learn about English-speaking countries and their way of life. By writing about it, you practice written production as well as comparing your own experiences with areas where English is a main language.

 

- What and how we are going to do?

 

  • You are going to read different texts about food and school meals (school dinners) in a few English-speaking countries. Remember to look up words that are difficult, but not every word, only the ones that make it difficult to understand the meaning of the text.

  • After reading, you are going to write - in a Google Drive-document named your name (!) and food: “Pelle 8C Food” - about what you have learnt and make a comparison (jämförelse) between what you are used to and what we eat here in Sweden and different countries around the world. Choose two or three English-speaking countries  to write about.

The entire text is supposed to be 300-400 words long (this is not a long text, so make sure you include the most important facts/examples and comparisons).

Try to include an introduction (inledning): two or three lines telling the reader what they are going to read -  and a conclusion (slutsats): three to five lines summing up (sammanfattar) your thoughts and what you have written in the text. An introduction can look like this: “In this text, I’m going to write about school lunches in the U.S. and India, and compare that with the food we eat in Sweden.”, and a conclusion could be: “So, in Sweden we don’t pay for the food we eat in school, but in the U.S. many people do pay. Since, I don’t like the food we eat in the cafeteria (bamba), I’m glad we don’t pay for it.” or look like this: “In conclusion/to sum up, in Sweden we don’t pay for the food we eat in school, but in the U.S. many people do pay. I think it’s very good that all Swedish children can have a meal in the middle of the day without paying.”

 

In your text, answer two of these questions:

  • how do school dinners work in the English-speaking countries you’ve chosen and how does it work in Sweden? Is it better or worse in Sweden or in the other countries? What is good and what is bad?

  • What do Brits eat for breakfast? What do you eat for breakfast? What do you see as a typically Swedish breakfast? Is it similar or different to a full English breakfast, why or why not?

  • if you come up with a question of your own on this subject, you can choose to write about that too (however you should answer at least one of the questions above plus your own).

  • Remember to give examples and explain why things are the way they are, or at least why you think they are that way.

  • Don't spend time looking for new information, use the information in the texts about food that can be found in the following link:(https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yTP7ewhlnAB1x4J-M_k_qDrrp74Q2HsIPAoSiFyfVa4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Before handing the text in, make sure to read it and look at possible ways of improving (förbättra) your text. Go back to earlier texts and look at the feedback you got on those assignments - can you use any of it on this assignment? Did you remember the capital i:s (stora i:n för “jag”) or dividing the text into paragraphs (styckeindelning)?

 

Tasks that are going to be assessed (bedömda):

  • The written assignment of 300-400 words and the comparisons between countries. Remember to compare what you learn in the texts with your own thoughts and experiences! Your text needs to be finished on Thursday 15/3.



Good luck!
