Today we held our 2022 Salem Junior High Battle of the Books Competition.  Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students.  The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers. In September, students formed teams of 4 or 5 students.  Each team member chose 3 to 4 books to read from a list of 20. Today, the students came together for a game-show style tournament where they worked as a team to answer questions about the books on the list.
