  • Objectives: To successfully make pumpkin bars 2. understand the difference between baking powder and baking soda and what they do 3. be able to identify different utensil with in the kitchen 4. ability to use correct measurements and measurement utensils The main audience that it will focus towards is around middle school and people with a general understanding of cooking but may not understand some of the terms used within cooking. I chose powerpoint program because I was most familiar with and have used it in other presentations but not in teaching thus far. I also thought it was a good program for steps because then the people learning will not get ahead of the steps involved in baking.
  • I thought this was a great page because it is a beware type page letting the learners know the safe precautions they must make when starting to cook. I was also going to put in a picture of me with flour on my face warning people that baking can be messy, just for a little fun instead of the clip art.
  • I was planning on putting a picture of a tablespoon and a teaspoon to show the difference. Also the difference between a liquid measuring cup and a regular measuring cup. I also did not have enough time to put in explanations about the measuring cup and how to level the powdered ingredients being measured.
  • I would have made this page a bit more organized. However I didn’t get time but the material is all there.
  • I was going to explain what the toothpick test is and what it actually tests when baking a cake or bars.
  • Critique of the “How To” I think that the picture were very effective showing what is needed and what the ingredients look like or what type of bottle they come in. I tried to change the hyperlink colors but I couldn’t figure out how to do it. This link will take you to a cooking page that will help with recipes and cooking. It seemed like the whole page was easy to follow along with and added information that most people wouldn’t know. The information went along with what was being talked about with in the slide and it help explained further procedures that need to be taken when cooking. I thought it was a good start to teaching cooking through a recipe.

    12. 12. Spreading, Yummy 1. To check if the bars have cooled completely, feel the bottom of the pan. 2. If it is still warm, they are still not ready for their topping, once it feels cool, like room temperature than you can start to spread. *This is the general rule for all cakes and bars when adding a topping. *
