A Tasting Menu of Literature

Upon their return from winter break, our 8th graders experienced a new way to dine when they visited "Cafe TPS” — a classroom restaurant with a “tasting menu” that included realistic fiction, historical fiction, poetry, graphic novels, fantasy, and science fiction “dishes.”


The tasting included using menus and napkins to capture the students' reviews of the readings, as well as ambient music and a cozy “virtual fireplace” as students rotated through each station.
