Battle of the Books (BOB)Coach:Mr. Kapp
Welcome to Clemmons Middle School's Battle of the Books page!
At CMS, we take reading seriously. Twenty-five minutes a day are dedicated to reading enrichment. During this time, students and teachers read a book together. This committment to reading translates to Battle of the Books.
The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!
