BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
Battle of the Books (BOTB) is a regional competition in which students work in teams of 2-4 people to read and study a set of 8 novels over the course of several months. In order to prepare for the competitions, students meet regularly to discuss the book and answer practice trivia questions. Once students have mastered their set of books, they participate in building and regional competitions!
Go see Ms. Ballard in the library to sign up!
You can sign up as a team (2-4 people only) or you can sign up by yourself and we will place you with an awesome team!
Please Note: If you join BOTB, you should expect to meet with your team at least once a month during lunch and/or 10th period. Some teams may decide to meet more often, especially in the spring when we are preparing for the battles!
