There will be teacher directed time as well as independent work time. **Students should note, you can expect at least 50 % of the course to be theory oriented and enhanced by labs where applicable. The course fee is $39.00 for 3 credits. Advanced Level Modules: (We will complete a minimum of 3 credits) FOD 3160 Regional Cuisine Students explore, in depth, the cuisine of another region in order to appreciate the richness of its history and culture. They discover its foods, experience traditional cooking methods, and learn about food customs. FOD 3030 Creative Baking Students learn about specialty cakes and pastry products, by selecting and creating various specialty cakes, pastries, and desserts. Students are scored on presentation of their product. FOD 3080 Advanced Meat Cookery This is a very practical module where we will learn to differentiate between cuts of meat and apply this to tenderizing and cooking methods. FOD 3100 Entertaining with Food Students plan and prepare food for an event, and develop organizational skills that may be used in the hospitality industry, at home or in entrepreneurial endeavors. Labs include all components of a formal meal (appetizers, side dishes, main courses, desserts etc). EVALUATION: Each module equals one credit and will vary in evaluation: Activities/Assignments 40 - 60% Labs 40 - 60% Module exam and/or quizzes 0 - 20% There are no exemptions from the food science exams. There are no midterms marks for the Food Science 10/20/30 courses. You will receive final marks for each credit earned on your report card. There is no cumulative exam given for the semester. Appeal Procedure: Students will have seven days to appeal an activity/lab mark or an exam score following the date of return of the corrected paper. Supplies Required: A duo-tang will be provided. You must supply your own loose leaf and a pen/pencil must be brought to every class. Students with long hair must have an elastic to hold hair back for the labs. Aprons are supplied for the cooking labs and must be worn. No hats are to be worn in the lab/classroom. A hairnet may be provided. (Note: attending class without required supplies will result in a telephone call home). Student Responsibilities: come to class on time; be prepared with all your supplies; be attentive and ask questions by raising your hand; observe and practice safety rules in the lab; keep a neat and organized notebook, treat each other politely and with respect; be honest. Do not bring your jackets or food/drinks into the classroom. Water bottles are permitted. Students may not leave the classroom without the teacher’s permission. If you miss a class, then it is your responsibility to find out what you have missed and do the work and pass it in. Missed labs are recorded as “m”, (missed and calculated as a zero), and you are required to complete the lab at home and pass in a parent signed verification/evaluation form before the end of that module to receive credit for the lab. At the end of the reporting period missing work is recorded as “m” for missing and scored at a 25%. Check Power School. Late Policy: If you arrive in class after the bell, you are marked “late” on the computer “Power Schools” attendance program. The first and second time you are late you will receive a warning. The third time you are late, you may not be allowed to participate in the cooking lab, if one is scheduled for that class (if you want marks for the cooking lab, you will be required to complete the lab at home). The fourth time you are late to class you will receive a phone call to your parent or guardian to inform them of your frequent tardiness to class. Subsequent lateness to class will involve administrative support. If you are coming late to class from another class, please bring a note from that teacher for admittance. This is a cumulative process for the term. Cell Phones and iPods: Leave you cell phones in your locker! If you bring one to class, you must keep it out of sight during lab and lesson times. If this privilege is abused, then you will be asked to pass it in to me and at the end of the day you will have to pick it up from an administrator at the office. You may listen to your iPod during independent work time with Teacher permission. You may not use your iPod during a cooking lab, or during lesson/demonstration instruction.
