LET'S GET READY TO BATTLE
The Battle of the Books will be starting soon. The goals of the program are to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, broaden reading interests, increase reading comprehension, and promote academic excellence.
Each year lists of books are chosen and questions are written for grades 5-8. Students read the books, discuss them, quiz each other on the contents, and then compete in teams to correctly answer questions based on the books in a "quiz show" format. Questions begin with the words "In which book..." so that the answer will always be a title and author. The actual battle will take place in late February, so teams have several months to read the list of titles.
