A Book Tasting at AMS

A Book Tasting at AMS

Algonquin Middle School seventh graders recently participated in a book tasting, which consisted of a literary exploration of free verse texts. 

Seventh grade ELA Teacher Ms. Nancy Thomas explained that book tastings are designed to encourage readers to discover new authors, titles and genres they might not have encountered otherwise.

With each tasting, or rotation, students were engaged with a new novel and perspective related to the genre of historical fiction.

Thomas said they sampled excerpts and book trailers, savoring the spirit of each book, and contemplating its potential for their book clubs.

The students had fun interacting with the books all while promoting literacy and fostering a love for reading!
