The LWMCP Battle of the Books Plus

When: May 15th, 2007

Where: 1212 East 59th Street (Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago)

Come join us as we cheer on students who will be competing on the strength of knowledge! 

Students from 23 LWMCP schools have read a series of novels and will be competing with each other to answer questions directly from their recent reads.  Some contestents prepared through literature circles while others excercised their reading skills through after/before school book clubs.  However these students read, they will now be put to a bit of healthy competition that will test their true academic strength.

 In addition to rounds of the Battle of the Books competition, students of the globalization project (iEarn) will display their writings and findings that were done as a result of collaborating with students from different parts of the world.  Each display will be judged according to evidence of higher order thinking skills and an inreased level of cultural awareness.  Come see these students9 horizon expand as they present their internationally developed communication displays.

We also have students of Writer9s Theatre that will perform plays from their own student written scripts!

The awards ceremony at the end of the event will recognize Battle of the Books competition winners, iEarn display winners, and it will also recognize winners who entered the LWMCP Poetry Month competition, which was under the theme of "The Signs of Spring".

So, come out and join us for a books bonanza and show your support*!
