Battle of the BooksMichelle Townsend (firstname.lastname@example.org) - FVMS Battle of the Books CoachPurpose:
The purpose of the Middle School Battle of the Books is to encourage reading and expose students of all ability levels to quality literature representing a variety of genres and viewpoints. The game format is intended to create interest and excitement. Students should remember that the intent is to read, not necessarily to win.
The format of the competition is a quiz bowl style question and answer session. Each competitor will be asked a question related to a specific book on the list and will need to respond with the correct title and author of the book.
Teams will consist of a maximum of 12 members. It is open to 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Six students will compete per round. The competition will be held in the February. This year’s books are listed below.
