The SRS Library is inaugurating a new reading incentive program just for 7th and 8th grade students! Book Madness is the brainchild of Librarian Mrs. Mount. After pulling together a diverse list of some 36 books and their annotations for Middle School Readers, Mrs. Mount used a Google form to poll 7th and 8th grade students about the titles that looked most intriguing to them. The attached powerpoint highlights the Sweet Sixteen titles which students will be reading until March Madness. At that time, the "brackets" will be revealed and students will place votes on their favorite books. All students participating will be invited to a Skype & Lunch session with a YA author TBD. As you can see from the PowerPoint, we've got some grrrreat titles, including classics, biographies, dystopian, sci-fi, graphic and high stakes adventure.
Read On! And let the Madness begin!
