This assignment goes beyond your standard food review as it asks students to research and evaluate all aspects of the restaurant including its history, location, and design. It includes a focus on using sensory descriptions and depictions to entice the reader.
In our current, cultural landscape there are many divisive topics that individuals associate with while dismissing contrary perspectives. It is easy to disregard what someone else has to say when there is a gap in empathy and connectivity. The goal of this exercise, in dismantling, or “checking one’s privilege”, is to allow students to see what kind of advantages they may take for granted while overlooking some of the obstacles others may have to face on a daily basis.
