Students in Amanda Green’s Exploring Reading classes at Trail Ridge participated in a Book Tasting in the “Exploring Reading Cafe” where they learned about different genres of books and got a “taste” of some new stories and possible interests. Students were given a menu to record their thoughts while traveling from table to table, identifying the characteristics of each genre of book, as well as providing a review of their “tasting.” Students were able to use the reviews from their peers to learn about other books and genres that they did not “taste” during their five-course book tasting time. Students were served refreshments as they traveled the cafe. Photo courtesy USD 231
