Happy Reading! : )
Grab a book this summer and prepare to Battle! B.O.B. – Battle of the Books!
The Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a Library Services and Technology Act grant. Students in 3rd-12th grade, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints.
OBOB’s mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students.
OBOB is run completely by volunteers through the Oregon Association of School Libraries (OASL) and funded partially through the Library Services and Technology Act, LSTA.
OBOB Registration will open on September 1 and will close on November 15. There will be no late registrations accepted.
A student participates by 1) reading from the book list provided for that year’s Oregon Battle of the Books, 2) discussing those titles and 3) competing in battles with their teammates.
A typical battle is a tournament or game, somewhat like Jeopardy, in which student teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list.
Many students read only about half of the books. There are a few readers who complete the whole list, but there are some who might only be able to read five of the books.
The school battles should be completed by the end of February. Reading through the summer is completely optional but OBOB title lists are available to students. Students should have plenty of time to read the books during the school year.
