Battle of the Books

The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature presenting a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The fame 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.
 
Students who wish to participate would benefit by reading as many of the books listed on the 2018-2019 list during the summer:
