Eat those words

When I was in high school, back when we took tests with stylus and stone tablets, taking the SAT wasn’t a huge deal. Really, I remember being advised to only take it once, and study classes didn’t exist. Now, there are books of all kinds purporting to offer the secret to SAT success. But I’ve found one that, even if it doesn’t guarantee perfect scores, does ensure that the kids will learn to make dinner.

“Cook Your Way Through the SAT” was created by a 14-year-old homeschooler who needed to do an art project and study for the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test). The recipes incorporate SAT vocabulary words. And the young lady is a relaxed, accomplished cook. See her videos and find more information at her blog, SatGourmet,  here. The book was released in September.

Thanks to Speed Hallman at the University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication for sending me a note about this.
