Providing students with accessible information about commercial food production is possibly the most difficult aspect of teaching food technology. Beverley Haigh's teaching pack, developed through a teacher placement at Greggs Bakery in Manchester, leaves no stone unturned in exporing the bakery process. The pack aims to simulate batch production in the classroom and to take students through the complete bakery process. There are numerous meticulously planned practical tasks, student worksheets and fact sheets as well as detailed teachers' notes and coloured photographs. Although written with a specific NEAB course in mind, the detailed information cannot fail to be of immense value for any food technology GCSE.
