I write the Switched-On Schoolhouse Series twice a month to share our family's experience using this software based curriculum in our home.
When I was in Junior High I took three years of Home Economics. I’m dating myself by telling you it was almost 25 years ago. We’re talking old school, girls only, cooking and sewing. Now I can honestly say I did learn a thing or two. I learned foundational cooking and baking skills that have served me well over the years. I can also sew decently, the most important thing learned from those units being hemming since I am only 4’9”. But that was the extent of our learning in Home Ec…cooking and sewing.
