INNOVATIVE WEB SERIES THE COOK BOOK CREATES BUZZ AMONG EDUCATORS
Educational Show Teaches Interactive Activities and Nutrition to Students K-12
August 24, 2015 – Long Beach, CA – Tutor for Tots, Tweens and Teens LLC—an in-home tutoring company for students K-12— will premier its educational web series, “The Cook Book” on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.
“The Cook Book” web series is an extension of Tutors for Tots’ supplemental educational services for students in grades K-12. The twelve-episode series correlates with the company’s in-home tutoring niche by providing interactive educational videos that children can watch in the comfort of their home and classroom.
Dupé Aleru, founder and owner of Tutors for Tots, exemplifies a hands-on approach to learning, while engaging the viewer’s senses on multiple levels. By utilizing taste, touch, look, and feel within each episode, “The Cook Book” increases both retention and comprehension by touching on the three main cognitive learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
“Learning is most effective when lessons are hands-on, and students are able to manipulate what they’ve learned on their own,” explains Aleru. “My goal was to create a web series that’s innovative, yet current. We live in a technological society where children have the option to learn on their own by just a click of a button. ‘The Cook Book’ gives students that option.”
The title “The Cook Book,” is a creative play with words, fusing together educational lessons with nutritional cooking. Each week the episodes will feature a two-minute educational segment—lessons and activities—the “book” portion of its name; and a two- minute cooking segment—recipes and cooking— the “cook” portion of its name.
The education segment will engage children by producing exciting educational lessons and activities that teachers can implement inside the classroom as educational demo videos during workshop, or whole group instruction. Most lessons support the Common Core Standards. In addition, the cooking segment dishes up creative recipes that student’s can replicate at home or school with minimal adult supervision. Co-host Chantal Jura, creates quick and simple healthy meals that can seamlessly tie in with health lessons at school. Furthermore, the recipes are designed to be easy and fun, while maintaining the health guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
