MAMS Students Sample Literary Genres During Class "Book Tasting"

Book Tasting

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.
