PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to Host a Book Tasting Event
BLOG POST: How to Host a Book Tasting Event

Book-Tasting and Text-Tasting Activities are fun and they help students make reading/writing connections.

To run book-tasting or text-tasting events, you’ll need several books, short stories or articles and menu covers with task sheet inserts.

Students will...

... hunt for author’s craft techniques (e.g. word choice, using punctuation for effect, context clues, imagery, one-word sentences, etc.),

...get exposure to multi-genre texts, and

...discuss why they think authors use specific formats to deliver information.

Secure multiple pages with rubber bands to create handy reference booklets that students will use throughout the year.

What Do You Get?

Single Page Book Tasting and Text Tasting Menu Covers (color and black and white)

Folded Menu in two sizes (color and black and white)

Two Color Posters and Display Slides

Eight Task Card Menu Inserts

Three Placemats

One Cheat Sheet

Video, Text, and Photo Tutorials
