Trivia!? Books!? Competition!? What could insight readers become even more actively engaged with reading? How about a trivia battle between competing school teams who've read the same book titles? This is the opportunity I'm presenting to my students: to participate in the Carnegie Library’s 2020 "Battle of the Books." The Battle of the Books will give my students a motivating end-goal, but it's the conversations we'll have before the battle where the real love-of-reading is fostered. What is the Battle of the Books? Carnegie Library puts out a list of ten books (divided by grade level) for students to read by the competition date. Our team signs up, reads the books, and then travels to one of the battle locations to compete against other schools in trivia (character, plot, book title) about the books. As an avid reader myself, I competed in three of the Carnegie's Adult Book Battles, and it is incredibly fun and enrichening experience (plus, some of the questions really have you think!). Here is some more information about Carnegie's Book Battles: Book Titles for 7/8 grade: https://www.carnegielibrary.org/staff-picks/battle-of-the-books-2020-7th-8th-grade-booklist/ Information/Registration: https://www.carnegielibrary.org/battleofthebooks/ This project will supply MOST of my students with MOST of the books on the Book Battle list. We will use the books to hold bi-weekly discussions of the books as we progress together down the list, preparing for the battle! It is here that we will do most of our learning! As teacher is it my job to teach content to my students. As a reading teacher, it is my duty to provide an appropriate learning environment to meet each students' reading needs. As a lover of books, it is my calling to insight my students to love reading and all it can do to enrich one's life.
