Battle Of The Books is a voluntary AkASL reading program that is endorsed by the Anchorage School District. Students in grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 read specific titles and answer questions about the books. "Battles" are held at the school, district, and state levels.
Students who wish to compete can read and discuss the books, quiz each other on the contents, and then compete in teams of not more than four students to correctly answer questions based on the books. Questions always begin with the words "in which book..." and the answer is a title/author from the list. Teams participate at the school level, and the Frontier Charter winners will be able to compete at the ASD Tournament(s).
