• Battle of the Books is a competitive program sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association.  Each year students form teams of six and work together to read from the list of 27 books. 
    Battle of the Books is open to all Western Middle School Students. In these meetings we will discuss the books and work some practice questions.  Teams should be formed by early November.   We will have practice rounds in November and December and the school competition in January.  
    This year our Battle of the Books students will meet during one of two times:
    1. Some students will be assigned to be in Battle during the intervention/enrichment period.
    2. There will be a Battle meeting each Wednesday morning from 7:45 - 8:05 for students who wish to participate in Battle but who are assigned to other classes during the intervention/enrichment period.
