Trying to engage middle school students is always a fun challenge. So, this year I changed up how I introduced them all to the library. Before they could checkout books I held a 'Book Tasting' to try to show them their options and to broaden their reading choices! The kids walked into the media center set up as a restaurant, and they tasted as many different genres as we could in the time allowed. Students sat at place settings with an activity, read menus if they needed help figuring out what they were "tasting", and gave feedback at the end.
I set up a Book Tasting 2.0 mid year to help some reading enrichment classes get back on track with their book selections as well. Book Tasting 2.0 involved upping the experience to create more excitement about what they were "tasting".
Will share all resources as handouts and electronic files.
