"Battle of the Books"

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 2, 2001

Towards the end of the year I keep motivating my students to read by hosting, "Battle of the Books". I give them a list of 5 different novels I want them to read over a period of a couple of months. I then divide my class into teams and each day they are given some time to discuss with their team about the novels and the characters in the novels. This is a team effort, so each one in the team tries to tutor one another so that they will all succeed. Then on the day of the "battle" I pass out white boards to each of my students. I then will read a quote from one of the novels and they have to guess which novel it comes from. Points are awarded to how many points were scored on each team.
