Mrs. Tolliver's 7th and 8th grade literature classes sampled six genres of reading material during the class's "Book Tasting."
Students rotated throughout the classroom to different restaurant-style tables that each hosted a different literary genre.
The middle school students got a "taste" of biography, horror, science fiction, poetry, historical fiction, and fantasy novels during the exploratory activity.
Students rated and reviewed the genres after skimming and reading through the books for a few minutes.
Tolliver played classical music and adorned the tables with restaurant-style placemats, table covers, and electric candles.
The purpose of the activity is to spark enthusiasm for reading and explore different literary pieces.
