You will need to read each of the 10 books by March 30th, so one book every two or three weeks if you pace yourself. You have to read every book. *Students, if there are some books you don't like, remember, you don't have to be an "expert" on every book, however, the list is non-negotiable. Students can pick up a list from Mrs. Wai in the library, or get the list here.
We will take a field trip to compete against other high schools whose team members have also read all 10 books. Teams of 4 students at a time will face off against 4 students from the opposing school taking turns to answer questions about the 10 books. Points will be tallied at the end of three 10-minute rounds, and winning schools will advance on to the finals in a double-elimination style competition. At the end, one school will walk away with a trophy and the champion title! Please see Mrs. Wai in the library for more information and for a student packet.
The 2019-2020 North Texas Book Battle will be held at Southlake Town Square. Date is pending.
The books will be available to borrow free of charge. Students are not required to purchase their own copies of the books. Multiple library copies have been purchased as well as copies available at the public libraries. Students will need to pay $15 for a team t-shirt, $5.00 for bus fee, and money for lunch and snacks (students are welcome to bring their own snacks and/or lunch).
