HMS Battle of the Books
What is Battle of the Books?
Battle of the Books is a reading motivation program. The goals of the program are to encourage reading for pleasure, to broaden reading interest, and to recognize students who enjoy reading.
Student teams of four to six particpants read 15 books over a period of months, discuss them, quiz each other on the contents and then compete on teams to correctly answer questions based on the books.
The state-wide program involves a cooperative effort by many individuals and New Jersey Association of School Librarians (NJASL). It is popular with students and has provided new opportunities for academic competition. Battle of the Books has proven itself to be effective in its specified purpose: to stimulate an interest in reading.
