The Middle School Battle Booklist for 2018-2019

What is Battle of the Books?

The philosophy of the Battle of the Books program is “to encourage reading by all students." Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!

Teams will compete against each other using Kahoot as the gaming platform.
