TOPIC: Food culture

CORE QUESTION: What is the food culture surrounding your favorite sport or team?

MISSION: Design a new food item to be part of the experience of a favorite sport or team, and propose it to the appropriate groups to obtain the resources needed to produce it.

OBJECTIVES: Through various proposed activities, students may: • Analyze primary sources and employ research strategies to obtain primary data from targeted collections of sources • Pose historical and design questions after analyzing and reflecting on primary sources • Express original arguments in written and spoken form • Use subject-specific vocabulary in constructing an argument • Apply principles of math to real-world scenarios

Standards

Conduct short research projects to answer a question, drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions for further research and investigation.
Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.
Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems.
Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.
Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words.
Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of how key events or ideas develop over the course of the text.
Integrate quantitative or technical analysis (e.g., charts, research data) with qualitative analysis in print or digital text.
Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems.
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
