by Traci Swain
Ready to turn critical thinking and reading comprehension into a game? Watch this Scholastic Book Clubs-exclusive Book Boys game show with your class. It will get students excited to dive into Freak the Mighty by Newbery Honor author Rodman Philbrick and ready to engage with the text.
How can you transform a “freak”-ishly good book into a “mighty”-fun classroom activity? With a Book Boys Trivia Challenge! The boys bring energy and excitement into your classroom with an engaging, fast-paced trivia game inspired by Freak the Mighty. See if your students already know the trivia answers—plus the video might encourage them to host their own book-inspired trivia game!
Adapting a book into a trivia challenge is a great way to get kids excited about a reading or language lesson. As in a game show, you can call out questions and give rewards. And when you host your own classroom game show, you can involve students by:
• Encouraging them to come up with their own questions
• Inviting them to compete head-to-head in a fun environment
• Asking them to think critically about the text and practice comprehension

These three guys from different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs formed a book group. Each week, they choose a new book to read together. Then they meet, discuss, and create fun and entertaining videos to help kids discover—and relate to—titles offered by Scholastic Book Clubs.
While the Book Boys come from diverse backgrounds and were definitely different growing up, they all have one thing in common: they really want to get kids excited about books and reading.
