Topic You will choose one of the following topic areas. Review the graphic organizer on page 407 in your textbook. The graphic organizer that you create doesn’t need to have boxed outlines or arrows, but it should show your organization. Choose one of the following topics, and divide it into classes. ? Sports—general, types of fans, or influence on culture ? Genres of movies, television shows, or video games ? Social media or networking sites and applications ? Places you’ve lived, visited, or vacationed As an example, the following is a graphic organizer for the topic “Types of Food.” Title: Types of Food Topic announcement: Restaurants Introduction Background: It is easy to choose healthy options when eating out. Thesis statement: Most restaurants, including fast food, casual and fine dining, make it easy for patrons to eat out without sacrificing a healthy diet. Body Paragraphs Fast Food Characteristic 1: not known for healthy choices but they are on the menu; light or low-calorie choices Example 1: plain burgers – no cheese; side salad rather than fries Characteristic 2: There are options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Example 2: McDonald’s has Egg White Delite, oatmeal, salads, grilled chicken Characteristic 3: Menus list calorie counts and other nutritional information Example 3: McDonald’s, Panera Casual Characteristic 1: more variety, wider menu, allow substitutions for healthier options Example 1: choice of sides – baked potato instead of French fries; salad rather than cream/bisque soup Characteristic 2: look up nutritional information online if it’s not listed on the menu; other indicators for healthy options. Example 2 Long Horn Steak House lists calorie counts on menu and notes healthy options with special characters Characteristic 3: many restaurants have separate healthy-option menus Example 3: Cheesecake Factory has a “Skinnylicious” menu, Denny’s has a “Fit Fare” menu, and Red Lobster has a “Lighthouse” menu. Fine Dining Characteristic 1: Smaller portions but richer foods/sauces; more courses Example 1: Less likely to overeat; smaller portions give patrons a taste of many foods; more portion control Characteristic 2: No nutritional info available; patrons need some knowledge of nutrition – calories/fat in foods – to stick to diet. Example 2: Better quality food, typically organic and non-GMO. This makes the food at fine dining restaurants better for you than similar options at casual restaurants. Characteristic 3: A la carte menus let patrons choose their own main course and sides. Example 3: appetizers optional; salad; choose healthier cuts of meat or have seafood – salmon, tuna; Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Le Bernardin for seafood Conclusion: Restaurants provide something for everyone, no matter their preference or dietary needs.
