PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hello, friend! Thank you so much for your interest in this product! This original idea is adapted from the wonderful Brown Bag Teacher. The original idea focuses around students reading books and then collectively deciding which book deserves to be in the #1 spot. I took that idea, and put my own spin it a few years ago.

I have put a lot of time and energy into creating a month-long ELA tournament in my classroom that focuses around books and writing! Students NEED to be writing about what they read and developing a sense of passion for great books. I have found that this tournament gets the students excited about reading and writing, and teaches them how to handle competition.

In my classroom, the only two MANDATORY activities students need to complete are the Book Cover Recommendation and the Summary. I give extra credit points in language arts to students each time they advance to the next round. You COULD have your students complete each activity if you'd like.

IN THIS PRODUCT YOU WILL FIND:
*A detailed description of how I use this product.
*A link to my Periscope video (available after 2/27) where I explain this tournament.
*Multiple versions of the overview page that outlines activities and due dates (due dates to be filled in by you).
*Detailed student planning pages that assist them through EACH of the five main activities: Book recommendation, summary, interview of the main character, act out a scene, and video book trailer.
*Peer evaluator rubrics for students to score one another in each activity.
*Teacher rubrics for each activity EXCEPT the video trailer.


**If you do not have access to technology that will allow your students to create a book trailer, I can edit the document with an activity of your choice that will still allow you to complete this tournament in your classroom. For an editable version that you can modify, please purchase the product, download the font KG Blank Space, and then send a request to brittneybriggs3@gmail.com.
