March Madness book Tournament
In celebration of March Madness, I created a library book tournament and began the bracket with our school's top 64 most circulated titles, which included general fiction, high/low fiction, and graphic novels. My hope was that the variety of titles meant that most students had read at least one of the books on the bracket, so that the activity was inclusive of everyone on campus. Students and teachers were encouraged to vote for their favorite books, by Google Form, bi-weekly. Throughout the month, we had a total of 424 responses; hopefully, this inspired some interesting conversations about literature. On March 29, I announced the winner, which was the Percy Jackson series.
In order, to keep interest in the top-voted novel, I created a Percy Jackson Giveaway and awarded the entire book series and the two films to the winner. Students had to post about the series on Twitter or Instagram, tagging both our library and the author Rick Riordan. The most insightful post won!
