Our 2013 March Madness LIbrary Book Tournament continues! Students were asked to vote on the match-ups from last week’s Sweet Sixteen, and the winning titles moved up in the brackets to the status of “Elite Eight.” Here are the titles that were promoted to the “Elite Eight” through voting all this past week (since March 1.)
We have updated our brackets posted in the library, printed new ballots featuring the next round of match-ups which go as follows, and already our students are visiting and voting for their favorite titles. Last week’s ballot asked them to predict the winner, and overwhelmingly many students picked Hunger Games. ALmost this exact post is featured on our Library Blog, Cavaliers Read.
- Catching Fire vs. Fade
- Wake vs. Mockingjay
- Legend vs. First Part Last
- Hunger Games vs. The Son of Neptune
Students have been told all ballots must be in the yellow box by Thursday, March 14. We will count the votes and update those brackets next Friday during our workday. Those wanting to know EARLY will have to check our blog next Friday online since students are not in school–teachers have a workday. (Aplogies for the poor quality of the picture of our brackets. I didn’t realize I clipped the edges off, eliminating the Sweet Sixteen from this picture.)
To our students, we left with this parting statement:
May the best book win! Keep voting as that is how a title wins–getting the most votes. Please remember all the books are on the tables beside this display. If you haven’t read one, check it out today!!
