Battle of the Books is a Quiz Bowl Style Competition. When students enroll in this battle, they commit to working with a school team to read books from the 2018-2019 B.O.B. list. The list includes ten books of various levels of difficulty. Students compete in teams at the school to answer questions about the books. In April, we’ll compete in the district Battle of the Books competition. The goal of B.O.B. is to teach students how to work together in a group for a common goal, expose them to award-winning pieces of literature, and encourage a high volume of reading inside and outside of the classroom.  Yes, it is a competition, but the purpose is to foster a love of reading!
