March Madness Book Edition: Our Elite Eight!

This month, my class is participating in our very own March Madness Book Edition!  Click here to read the posts about how this idea came to action in our classroom and how we got started.  

Yesterday, we narrowed down the books down to our Elite Eight!  One of my students made a ballot on Google Drive and printed out copies for each student to vote by circling their favorite book within each pair.  He also included each title's seed number (from 1 -8) next to it.  Yesterday, I tallied up all the votes and officially announced the titles in our Elite Eight and added them to our bulletin board. 

Next week, we will vote for our Final Four titles, which students have admitted is going to be very, very hard to do and even near impossible in some brackets because it is so difficult to choose at this point. The students have been using our March Madness Book Edition bulletin board to help them choose books they want to read next so they can vote for them. Students are also rallying behind certain titles and highly recommending them to their classmates so "their" title can keep winning and make it to the next round. 

Stay Tuned! :)
