BOOK -TASTING and TEXT-TASTING:  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 1) hunt for author’s craft techniques 2) get exposure to multi-genre texts, and 3) 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. #strugglingreaders (available at TpT)
