  1. Who Would Win: Access to books VS interest-based book choice? The power of student-driven choice delivers added value above and beyond mere access.
  2. Who Would Win: Assigned reading VS reading celebration? Build agency and identity as readers through peer2peer discussion and celebration of reading.
  3. Who Would Win: Learning at school VS family engagement? Easy ways for kids to bring the classroom culture of literacy home, and for parents to engage.
