Battle of the Books is a collaborative reading competition for strong readers at the upper elementary and middle school levels. It is designed to enhance student commitment, team building, reading comprehension, and study skills in a fun, informative manner. Teams of up to six students read from a pre-selected list of books.
Books included on the reading lists have been carefully selected and are chosen for their high-interest level, challenging vocabulary, and multiple reading levels. The books are purposefully selected to expose students to a variety of genres, quality authors, diverse cultures, and historical eras.
GPAEA’s 2021 Battle of the Books will be held April 8 (elementary) and April 9 (middle school). This year the competition will be a totally virtual event. Registration is now open. For more information please contact Jane Frizzell.
