The Battle of the Books is a statewide competition that is held in partnership with local public libraries. Battle of the Books is offered to all Bologna 5th and 6th grade students. Participating students form or are placed in teams of 2-3 students.
Each quarter, the students are responsible for completely reading each book in order to be best prepared for the battle at the beginning of the next quarter.
Each battle will take place during the school day and typically last an hour. Parents and families are invited to joins us during these school battles.
The school battles are typically hosted in the library. The teams are orally quizzed on details surrounding the most recent 4 books.
Points are awarded, but not revealed until after the third and final competition in the spring.
The team that has accumulated the most points after the three main competitions will go on to represent our school at the City of Chandler semi-final competition that will take place at the ChandlerPublic Library, downtown branch.2019 - 2020Battle of the Books Titles
