Welcome Back Are You Ready to READ?

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Well, if you have not already started back to school yet, today should find all the students flooding the halls of schools and gearing up for another year. 

Once again The Area Wide Book Battle committee has been working hard to make sure that the 2011/2012  Book Battle is a success.

On this blog you will find all the forms to get your team registered, the official book list and important announcements about which authors will be on hand for the competition.

In addition the blog will once again post The Question of the Week (beginning in January) and 

The Feature Book of the Week (starting next Tuesday Sept. 19, 2011)

We hope you will encourage your students to take part in these posts. One way is to have students leave comments about the authors' posts, biographies, and their books, as each author takes time out of their writing schedules to personally write for our participants. 

The other is to have your team use The Question of the Week as a way to prepare for the battle in May. 

This year in addition to a awarding a prize for the school who has the most correct answers for The Question of the Week, we will also award a prize for the school who has the most comments on The Feature Book of the Week as well.

If you have any questions regarding the blog do not hesitate to contact Jan at areawidebb@gmail.com

You may also use this new email to leave comments if you run into difficulty with the comments

Read about six books or so at this point. One was fantastic, two were great, one was good, and one was okay, but one I had to abadoned for now because I felt uncomfortable reading it and I doubt the quality of it. Let's say that I didn't find the narrator sympathic and the school was very stereotypical.

By the way, the left side of the blog needs to be updated to this year. As far as I know, it's not 2010. :p
