Eating cookies can help your child get a better SAT or ACT score. Stop laughing! I'm totally serious! Careful research in my own home suggests that 100% of students will laugh when assigned sweet confections for schoolwork. (Complaining may resume after laughter has ended, however, so your mileage may vary.) Hear me out - here's how to raise test scores by baking!
1. Give a sample SAT test at home.
Give the test in the kitchen, timed.
I find that the SAT test pairs well with chocolate chip cookies.
While the child takes the test, you bake cookies.
Once the test is finished, reward them with cookies and an afternoon free from school.
The student will associate the test with pleasure and sweetness, not pain.
