Battle of the Books

Plainfield District 202's Battle of the Books is an annual reading competition that has been modified for this year's online learning environment. The competition is tentatively scheduled for April 12 through 23 and will be held completely online. Teams must include 3, 4, or 5 students (although Mrs. Murray will help students form teams if necessary). Each team will receive 5 books so that each student is responsible for reading and becoming an "expert" for their chosen 1 or 2 books. The students will have approximately 6 weeks to read their book(s) before the competition. Currently, the plan is to hold the BOB competition between 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. so that students will not miss class time.

Our tentative schedule:

January 8 Title Release
January 27 Deadline to form teams (Permission Slip Link)
February 7 BOB Shirt Order Deadline
Late Feb- early Mar Books handed out
April 12 - 23 The Battle Begins!
