SCISA Competition: Battle of the Books

All Saints' Lower School and Middle School teams competed in the South Carolina Independent School Association's Battle of the Books Competition on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Battle of the Books is a reading competition that requires students to read books and come together to demonstrate their reading comprehension abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The teams are given a list of 20 books to read prior to the competition, and then they are asked specific questions about the books to earn points in a Quiz Bowl format.
