Each spring the two WISD middle schools (Hall MS & Tison MS) participate in a "battle royale" to see which school gets the honor as WINNER of the WISD Battle of the Books! The 2018-19 school year will be the 4th year the middle school libraries have participated in a book battle tournament. Tison has participated in the last two years, and each year we have a Tison team place 2nd in the tournament so we're extra eager to get that #1 spot this year!
Here is how it works. Mrs. Riebe (Hall MS Librarian) and I decide on the 10 books that will be part of the challenge each school year, and each librarian is responsible for procuring (either borrowing or buying) a set of books for every team. Students in grades 6-8 can create their own teams of no more than six people.
