    Six weeks before the Book Battle, the students will work on the wiki promoting the books and completing the tasks. The students will have access to the wiki in the classroom and at home so they may finish tasks if they fall behind or browse through the wiki to help prepare them for the Book Battle as well as the print resources in the classroom and the study guide the students will make up during one of the library sessions. On the day of the Book Battle, groups will be formed that will have one student from each book group on the wiki. The students will work together to answer the questions because this Book Battle is not only promoting reading comprehension but teamwork as well. The Battle will work by the School Media Specialist rotating to each group and asking them a question. The students will have thirty seconds to answer a question and if they pass or say the wrong answer, the question is asked to the next group until there is a correct response. Each correct answer is worth one point and at the end of the battle, the group with the most points is promoted that year's winner. Each fourth grade class will have a winning group. All students will get participation certificates and the winners will get a different certificate in addition to their group picture posted on the bulletin board in the School Media Center.
    Technology Elements - Students will communicate using Web 2.0 technology to learn the books for the Book Battle by visiting the wiki, which will be an interactive study guide filled with tasks. Other technology and websites the students will be using are: Voice Threads, Wordle, Big Huge Lab's Trading Cards, MyStudiyo Quizzes and ALA Reading Posters.

    For Swindle, each student will have to make a character trading card. You may choose from the following characters:
    Griffin Bing
    Ben Slovak
    Old Man Rockford

    Babe Ruth
    S. Wendell Palomino
    Savannah Drysdale
    Antonia "Pitch" Benson
    Logan Kellerman
    Melissa Dukakis
    Darren

    If you are up for a challenge, select a lesser known character to profile and get the chance to be a real book detective to search for the information about them in the text, chapters.
    If there are more students in the group than characters, as long as all the characters are taken, two students may do the same character, but each have to produce or make their own trading card!
