Wii Read Challenge

Westview Middle School 2014-2015

Purpose of the Challenge

The purpose of the Wii Read Challenge is to promote reading at Westview Middle School. Students are encouraged to read high quality, high-interest, contemporary literature from a variety of genres.

Wii Read Challenge

The Wii Read Challenge is a voluntary reading program that encourages students in grades 6-8 to READ FOR THE FUN OF IT! Mrs. Bettis and ELA teachers will book talk several titles and explain the book review process. Students will also view book trailers on the WWMS news show for suggestions of quality books to read.


Students participating in the challenge will select their own books to read. The books may come from any genre; however, students will need to follow the guidelines below as to whether they should read a chapter book, nonfiction book, or an award book. After reading each book, students will complete a book review (see below). For every reading goal met, students will receive an invitation to a mini-celebration in the media center. If they read and review 10 or more books, students will be invited to the "Wii Read" event in May.
