  • 7th & 8th grade English students on "Understanding Plagiarism"
  • 8th grade English students on using Noodle Tools to create annotated bibliographies
  • 7th grade social studies students on PBL assignments related to the American Reconstruction

Battle of the Books Update

As a reminder, Battle of the Books (BOB) meets on Thursday afternoons in Room 121--across from the library. We are currently reading and discussing this year’s Virginia Reader’s Choice books (in no particular order). We are asking all BOB members to fill out this form for each of the books that they read. Ultimately, the book questions that they generate will be used for practice rounds of our competition. To find out more about this club, please visit the Battle of the Books Website.
