Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students explore the genre of menus by analyzing existing menus from local restaurants. They review adjectives and descriptive writing based on the language included in the menu examples. After establishing the characteristics of the genre, students work in groups to choose a restaurant and then create their own custom menus. Students can create fully detailed menus that include foods for all meals as well as details about the restaurant itself. If time is limited, groups can design individual pages of the menu. Less
