For the final assignment my first-year “Food in History” course, my students make a 5-minute documentary on the food culture of a Chicago neighborhood. In this session I will describe the the process I use to prepare students for this project.  The process involves understanding the rhetoric of film, analyzing documentaries, developing historical research techniques and learning film production basics. I will provide copies of the handouts I distribute to my students. The session will end with viewing some representative videos.
