If you haven't had a "Battle of the Book type competition in your classroom or school, this is a great way to encourage reluctant readers and improve comprehension and retention. It is a pretty easy set-up...just choose the titles you want to use and then get the questions for those books. I notice many sights have the questions set up on cards, but after organizing and moderating five battles, I found it was just as easy to keep the questions on separate laminated sheets with the title and author at the top for quick reference, then put all sheets in a notebook to thumb through and check off with an erasable marker as you use them. I also did not find it necessary to have 40 questions for each book. I felt it was more important for all of my questions to be in the "In Which Book...?", format which would be used in the competition. Even using these questions for practice sessions, 20-30 questions was more than sufficient for practices and a fair and lively competition.
This file contains 28 Battle of the Books questions for the book, "From Emporia: The Story of William Allen White" by Beverly Olsen Buller. These are "In which book..." questions with the answer to each question being the title and author of the book.
