VIRTUAL RUN CLUB RETURNING SPRING 2021


Battle of the Books

Mrs. Meredith, our ERE librarian, brought Battle of the Books back to Eagle Ridge in 2019 and will be providing guidance for the virtual battles in February 2021.  Here is info for this year:

Thank you for your interest in participating in an altered Battle of the Books format for 2020-2021. We currently have roughly 25 schools who are participating! Here’s how this is going to work:

The shortened booklist is below; there are three books per grade level for students to start reading. Starting February 10, we will host three live online quiz shows for any interested students (in the appropriate grade levels) who have read the books. We will take the top scores from each school and use those to create a running point total for your school. You can have as many kids participate as you’d like, although only the top scores will count toward the point total. At the end of the three week competition period, the school with the most points per grade level will be crowned the winner of this year’s competition. There will be prizes for the top scores each week, and the 2 winning schools will get trophies commemorating their wins.

The questions themselves will not follow the usual “In which book…” BOTB format. They will be multiple choice, covering all three books in each quiz show, with the fastest correct answers garnering the most points. The three quiz shows will have completely different questions, so students should tune in weekly to compete. I will host practice sessions several times in January, and you will get that schedule before you leave for Winter Break. If you’d like to get a feel for the format, feel free to tune in to DCL’s Quarantine(ish) Quiz Show: Holiday Edition, which is happening on December 4 at 7pm. You can register for that online at DCL.org. The format and software we use for that Quiz Show will be exactly the same as the Battle Quiz Shows.
