To prepare for book battling, please join the Google Classroom: Battle of the Books 2020-2021 with the code: fa3qmar
The tenth title selection will be announced in August--it's a surprise!! : D
The Battle of the Books is a county-wide reading competition held annually in the spring with the goal of creating positive reading experiences for our teams. Students participate throughout the school year by reading books from the list and joining in meeting activities to celebrate our shared reading experiences. Each team member must read at least one of the books. All the books must be read by at least one team member, but we stand the best chance in competition with more members having read and familiarized themselves with more books.
During the competition, teams collaborate on their answers and write them out on a dry-erase board. Points are given to each team (school) with the correct answer(s). The team with the most points overall wins. All participating competitors are invited to a post-competition party.
Curious about the battle? The three styles of competition questions are:
- Short answer
- "Which character said/did . . ."
- "In which book did . . . happen?"
