Reading Rumble Program Summary
Reading Rumble is a reading program that culminates in an academic competition between participating campuses at the elementary and the intermediate levels. Each level has a list of titles from which students participating in the program read (see reading list for 2011-2012 above). For the 2012 competition, the high school campuses will join the Rumble. Welcome to the competition!
At the campus level, students compete to represent their campus at the district competition. Students are asked to answer questions and identify quotes regarding the titles.
At the district competition, teams of six students work together to identify quotes from this year's list of selected titles. Rounds of questions and quotes are read and ultimately a winning campus team becomes the district champions. Each level has a traveling trophy that the winning team proudly displays until the competition next year.
