Grade 7s experience 'book tasting'

The Grade 7s recently enjoyed a ‘book tasting’ session in the TWC Library. The girls were instructed to sit at random seats with each seat having a book to discover (covered with a plate)





The Grade 7s then uncovered the book and were given 5 minutes to read the first few pages, read the synopsis/story line and look at the cover.



After 5 minutes, they had to cover the books up again and move onto the next book.



When they had enjoyed 6 rounds of 'book tasting', the girls completed a questionnaire about the books they had uncovered - including which was their favourite and least favourite book.



They then reported back to the class on which book they found the ‘tastiest’.
