Ms. Ellis’ Literary Duel: How Bookish Are You Really?

books-wallpaper-10626-11133-hd-wallpapers

I officially challenge you to a duel of literary proportions! Each quarter you will compete against your teacher to see who can read the most books (nonfiction or fiction). If you beat me, you will receive an automatic “A” to use on any project (that same quarter) of your choosing. If you read at least ten (10) books each quarter, I will give you extra credit for the quarter.

Note: It is possible to receive the automatic “A” AND the extra credit. 

Here are the rules:

  1. Your book must be within the Lexile range for your grade level.

    • The “Stretch” Lexile Band is for those readers who want to challenge themselves.

  2. Check Lexile levels here by typing the title of your text in the right-hand corner.

  3. You must submit a book review on Goodreads for every book you read. Follow Ms. Ellis on Goodreads so she can see your progress. Your book review must contain the following information:

    • Write a summary of the book including its central idea.

    • Discuss the book’s strengths and weaknesses.

    • Tell whether or not you would recommend the text to other readers.

  4. Keep a hard copy of your reading log posted in the classroom: Ms. Ellis’ Literary Duel Log
