Grammar Recipe by Nancy Hoang on Vimeo.

This video was made for a school assignment in the fall of 2014. The project had to be a substantial and effective teaching device but above all, it had to be engaging. I decided to make a stop motion baking video and substituted what would traditionally be baking ingredients with grammar terms. What resulted was a lot of fun for my cousin to bake (although my photo taking definitely tested her patience) as well as an entertaining grading experience for the TAs. I’m proud to admit that this project received an A.
