Book Madness: Better than a Book Report
plays on the idea of sports tournaments but instead puts books up to compete. Students select a book to enter in the tournament and then use different means to persuade others to vote for their book! March Madness isn't just for math class.
Included in this ready-to-use guide:
- Suggestion for how to set up the “tournament”
- Student handouts including a directions, book cover template, summary template, and twitter campaign (optional)
This project is a great way for students to introduce each other to great books and practice the art of persuasion. Use once or have ongoing tournaments throughout the year. Great for inspiring even the most reluctant readers.
