Battle of the Books

Meeting times:  Monday after school from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Location:  The Learning Commons

Description:  Students will be choosing books from a list of 12 titles to read and know well. The books are broken down into genres and we will focus on one genre at a time. Students will be expected to read at least one title in each of the four genres over our time together--from October through mid-March. We will use our meeting times to discuss the books in various formats and build collaboration and communication skills. To add some competition and fun, we will break into teams and use a "quiz-like" format to see which teams know the details and ideas in the books the best! At the end of the season in March, we will compete against three other middle schools to see which school can boast that their kids knew these books the very best!
