Battle of the Books
5th Grade Reading Program
The Field Battle of the Books program is a collaborative team competition. The program is designed to encourage recreational reading, goal setting, and the satisfaction derived from practicing and working together. The various battles will be based on the books in the 2020 Caudill Young Readers Program. The teams will earn points during the battle by responding to a question with a short answer, title of the book and the author. The Field Champion Team will represent Field School at the Crosstown Battle of the Books.
The 2020 Battle will be based on selected titles from the 2020 Caudill List. https://www.rebeccacaudill.org/images/2020/2020CaudillAuthorList.pdf
The Battle of the Books program has a long history dating back to a radio program sponsored by the Chicago Public Library in the early 1940’s.
