Guidelines for eating in the classrooms

First of all, Caddo rules prohibit eating in the classroom. Administrators, however, may make exceptions where needed for academic purpose.

Ms Rounds new guidelines for study-related tastes at school require us to have written slips from parents giving the teacher permission to feed the students. And ingredients for a dish must be published. Happily, my students routinely explain the ingredients - under my questioning, at the very least - as they serve a dish related to a foreign culture.

My guidelines include -
* something easy to serve; a cold dish.
* a dish that expands tastebuds a bit; not something that is commonly consumed.
* explantion of ingredients, source of recipe and its place in the culture.
* that we are scrupulously neat in serving and clean up.
