    Battle of the Books
    By BOTB

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Our school does "Battle of the Books". The students who join, pick teams, read three books, then participate in a game-show type "battle" answering questions about all three books. They meet weekly to discuss the books. The program only lasts eight weeks or so with the game at the end.

    Maybe you could work out something similar with one book each month. First meeting - hold book clubs. Second meeting - hold battle. Maybe each student could read a book at his/her own level, then form teams of three, with one member from each level. Possibly team members will choose to read the other books, so they can help each other in the contest. Or give leveled teams questions from different books.
