Lesson Enhancements and Visual Aids

In order to reach different types of learners during Cooking Matters programs, we have developed a collection of visual aids that help show many of the Cooking Matters concepts in an easy-to-understand way.

Cooking Matters coordinators can bring these to any course as a teaching tool for instructors. Follow the link on each visual aid to better understand their purpose and how you can use these as an instructor. A PDF of the instructions is available on the left side of the page should you want to print a copy.
