March Madness Book Edition 2015: Our Sweet Sixteen!

This month, my class is participating in our very own March Madness Book Edition!  Click here to read posts I have written in the past about the process of selecting books and voting during March Madness.  

Last week, we narrowed down our 32 books to our Sweet Sixteen! I used Google Forms to create a survey for students to vote for their favorite book in each bracket.  To vote, students checked off the box next to the book of their choice in each bracket. Below is a photo of one section of the voting form.  

When they finished voting, they clicked "submit form" and I received the results.  Students were also able to see the results too once they hit the submit button and they loved seeing the bar graphs for each bracket to see if their book was winning!  Below is a photo of one page of results that students received on their screen after submitting their form.  

After reviewing the results and revoting because of two ties, we officially announced the titles in our Sweet Sixteen and added them to our bulletin board. As you can see from the photo below, this is not the most updated because we need to re-vote for two brackets. The Lemonade War series ended up winning by one vote against Theodore Boone series and The Three Ring Rascals series ended up winning by one vote against The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.  

This week we will vote to see which titles will move on to the Elite Eight! Stay tuned!
