TAG Team

TAG Team  2021-2022

What is TAG Team?

TAG Team is a voluntary reading group that meets to discuss books they have read from the TAG Team list and posts comments about the books within a private Canvas class online.  In the spring, TAG Team members have the opportunity to vote for their favorite TAG Books and these books then become the “Trendy Twelve” books for the following school year. TAG Team members earn community service hours (2 hours for each book read), (.5 hours for each lunch meeting), and (.5 hours for online discussions within Canvas).


Who creates the TAG Team List of Books?

School Library Media Specialists within the Blue Valley School District read possible books over the summer and meet to discuss and select the final list of TAG books.


Who can participate and what are the requirements?

Any 7th or 8th grade student who commits to reading the list of TAG Team books as well as attending the lunch meetings and discussions along with posting reviews on the Canvas site can participate.  You must commit to reading twelve of the twenty-five TAG Team Books.  The final deadline for all books and voting to be complete is March 18th, 2021.  


All books are to be rated in the following manner:

5 = very highly recommended                2 = adequate, fair

4 = highly recommended                 1 = poor

3 = average                         0 = not appropriate
