Battle of the Books Is Coming!

Battle of the Books is a game-show style competition that pits two teams against each other.  This year's match-ups will be:

6 white vs 6 blue
7 white vs 7 blue
8 white vs 8 blue 

Teams will feature 10 players and a number of alternates.  The teams will be given a list of books, and students will have approximately 5 weeks to read as many of the books as possible.  The list of books will be revealed this Monday!  As a group you’ll need to decide who is going to read what books. You don’t have to read them all, but the more you read the better your chance of winning.  

There are several different types of questions.  Some use a buzzer, while others are group questions.  Take a look at the video above for specific rules and some examples.

If anyone has any questions or would like more information about the Battle of the Books, stop by the Media Center and see Mr. Spada.
