    Each team needs at least one set of books to read. As students read titles from the list, they are encouraged to write questions about the books as they read. Some questions can be used for in-depth exploration and conversations during book club meetings and some questions are knowledge level questions that can be used to prepare for the online battle competition. Participation in the Battle of the Books program promotes greater depth and breadth of student reading, encourages cooperation, teamwork, reading motivation and accomplishment. Everyone’s a winner in the Battle of the Books!
