Today, I decided to give my students a review of what we had covered last semester in the form of a quiz. While not completely disappointing, I wasn't satisfied with the result. A very low percentage took time to remember the basic culinary terms that were taught last semester. Only about 30% of the students remembered the functions of the food nutrients in the body. And to think that everyone of them had had lessons on them, in one form or another, in one of their Health classes!
A dash of consolation for me was the fact that over 50% were able to match the right utensils for the respective cooking and preparation skills involved in a recipe.
Quite a picture of the future, hmmmm.......
Well, while you lose some, you win some.
