BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

Congratulations to all Battle Members. Even though we didn't take 1st place last year, we had a great time reading awesome books.

Are you ready to battle? The purpose of the Battle of the Books is to encourage reading through a little friendly, quick action, competition. Teams of five students (with one alternate) compete against each other in a quiz-bowl type competition. Competition will be a round robin tournament with the winning team from Castle Rock competing against the other DCSD Middle Schools.

Registering Your Team & Submitting Questions

Teams can have up to six members.

Five will compete in the final battle; and one member will be the alternate.

Teams need to be registered and the Team Leader should fill out this REGISTRATION FORM date TBD

All teams are encouraged to submit at least 20 questions to the battle for practice rounds. For a team of five that would be 2 questions each. By registering, you are agreeing to submit questions.

Questions begin with "In which book..." or have a specific and discrete answer that can be found on a page of the book. It would be ideal to submit questions (and answers) for several of the books.

Please see Mrs. Miller or Mrs. Scheibe for assistance on how to submit practice questions or complete the registration if you have questions.
