NC K-12 Culinary Institute Instructional Resources

Listen! Learn! Lead!

Participants in the K-12 Culinary Institute workshops learned many skills to become North Carolina K-12 Culinary Chef Ambassadors!  In those workshops the Ambassadors Listened to chefs share their knowledge and skills and Learned new techniques and strategies to use in their own districts. Now, they are equipped to Lead efforts in their school districts by Teaching-It-Forward!

Teach-It-Forward (TIF)

The NC K-12 Culinary Institute was designed and developed on the Teach-It-Forward (TIF) model of instruction and learning. This model is based on four fundamental principles of learning: Knowledge Transfer, Demonstration, Practice and Feedback; also referred to as KNOW, SHOW, DO, and COACH.

TIF Toolkit

To support the Teach-It Forward model, the Culinary Institute design and development team created an impressive collection of instructional tools and resources (print and video) to assist the Chef Ambassadors in sharing their knowledge. Ten (10) TIF Short Set Modules on topics covered in the K-12 Culinary Workshops were developed to aide in providing effective training in a short amount of time.  Of the many instructional tools provided, some coordinate directly with the TIF Short Set Modules and others are stand alone instructional resources for use in the school’s production kitchen with the culinary team.
