Help! I have a knack for cooking but I'm slightly video-challenged!

Author Charis Freiman-Mendel invites innovative videographers to create a promotional video for "Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T." The book is a study guide and cookbook that helps students prepare for the SSAT, PSAT, SAT and other standardized tests given in middle school and high school. The book also appeals to parents, educators, chefs, word lovers, families looking for "quality time" activities and just about anyone who enjoys good food and great words.

"Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T." pairs each of 99 recipes with a "fun fact blurb," a short paragraph that tells an interesting fact about the recipe, such an ingredient or historical tidbit. Each blurb contains 10 words that commonly appear on all standardized tests given to teens and tweens. A vocabulary match test follows each blurb and students can check their work with the answer key for all 1000 words at the end of the book. "Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T". is a creative, project based teaching tool that makes learning fun.
