Product Description

An Author Tasting is a spin off a book tasting. It gives students an opportunity to focus on an author and their works. To create an author tasting in class, set out a variety of the author’s books on tables or desks. I suggest using the ones I have included Read Aloud QR codes for. Students will get to explore three of the books set out during each course of the meal. Encourage students to find a book that has 3 or 4 students surrounding it and then work together to fill out the menu. Giving students a time limit of around 8 minutes per “course” keeps students focused and things moving. Once the appetizer round is finished, move on to the next course until the meal is over. At the end, digest the activity together as a class. It works well to create a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the author’s different works if time permits.

My students loved this experience. They were intrigued by the different stories and delighted when they ran across one they had enjoyed in the past.
