Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for all Madras students in grades 6-8. The purpose is to simply encourage students to read good books and have fun while reading. Students read selected books and come together to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they've read. The competitions are similar in style to the TV series Family Feud. Competing teams of 4 to 5 students are alternately asked questions about the reading selections from a given list of books (See link below.) Points are scored for correct answers, and the team with the most points after 3 rounds advances to the next level of playoffs. Awards will be given for each grade level winner, and there will be a battle for the Madras Grand Champion between 6th, 7th, and 8th grade winners in a 3-way competition. Teams will be chosen in August and will meet to divide up the book list. Books will be available in the media center but can also be borrowed from the public library or purchased at local book stores. Students can begin reading the books any time. We hope that this will inspire your leisure reading, and we look forward to the new school year as we begin the Battle of the Books!
