Tharp Book Tasting

Hilliard City Schools

Book Tasting is an event that introduces students to new titles and genres. Students have the opportunity to move around the restaurant (classroom) and experience titles they may not have heard of before. Language Arts Teacher Brittany Gillespie loves to give her students the opportunity to try out new books whenever possible, and give special attention to those books or genres that they may not always pick out for themselves. Book Tasting gives them time to sample something different! In Hilliard, we prepare students to be Ready for Tomorrow by helping them to discover interests they never knew they had.
