BATTLE OF THE BOOKS BEGINS!

Grades 5-8: Battle of the Books Information

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 of not more than three students 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 February, so teams have several months to read the list of titles.

Students will be introduced to the program next week. Those wishing to participate will need to get parent permission. Permission slips will be handed out in October, and students will be able to sign-up for their team and check out the titles after that.

Please contact Dawn McCabe if you have any questions. mccabed@rockford.k12.mn.us
