Are You Ready to BATTLE?

The Battle of the Books will be here before we know it!

When: Tuesday, October 27.

What is the Battle of the Books?
A lively academic competition, Battle of the Books improves reading comprehension, builds vocabulary, and teaches teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Teams of 2-3 students read the same pre-assigned books over the summer months. The titles included a wide range of reading levels, subjects and genres. In addition to reading the books, teams chose a team name, created posters, then dressed in costume for the event.

During the "battle" (4-5 rounds with 15-questions each), students are asked questions that include a direct quote from one of the book’s characters; a statement about something that happens in the book; or the theme or setting of a book. All answers a book titles.
