Battle of the Books
Middle School Battle of the Books is a yearly competition where selected students from each middle school compete against each other on their knowledge of various books. Anywhere from 20-30 books are selected by members of the North Carolina School Library Media Association. Each year, Tyro chooses students from each grade level to participate and be a part of the team. Team members are expected to read many of the books and become "experts" on several assigned books. Team meetings and practice will take place after school at designated times; however, the majority of reading will be done independently at home.
