On the first day of my web design elective in the fall of 2020, students were paired up randomly and asked to sketch their partners. They sent these sketches to me, not sharing them with their partners. For their first assignment, students were asked to identify a family heirloom recipe, swap it with their partner’s recipe, and translate it into HTML. They were also asked to interview each other about the significance of the recipe.
At the conclusion of the semester, I compiled all of the recipes, sketches, and interviews into a book, printed it through Blurb, and distributed it to the students as a keepsake.
