The way to a teenager's heart is through his stomach! Promote your program and teach your students about another culture at the same time by serving some food in class. Each year I try to serve a Bûche de Noël (yule log Christmas cake) in French III. Sometimes I make the cake, but this year I bought one at Whole Foods.
I'm never disappointed at the delight, interest and motivation that food evokes in my students! I'm always glad that I expended the extra effort to include it in my lesson. I provide students with the recipe as well, and some of them always try it at home.
