The Mighty Smackdown moves on…

Standard

Another year of the Mighty Smackdown has begun.  My third, and fifth for the Smack down itself.  This is a professional development opportunity for teachers to read and familiarize themselves with some Young Adult literature that is available.  New books are selected each year, many are award winners.  Teachers are divided into teams.  Each team reads two novels and advances one.  Sometimes it is a hard choice, either because you like them both or because you don’t.  Other times the choice is so clear and obvious.  We keep reading, voting and then blogging about our choices.  As books are eliminated, the groups get bigger.  Until there are only two books left and the whole group votes on which book can be the one and only victor…or until the facilitators have to break the tie, like last year.  I have been fortunate enough to like the winner in both of my previous years which is NOT the case for all my colleagues.  The first bracket is done, and the victors have been announced.  Excited about bracket number 2.  Check it out at the link below.
