March means Madness! Coinciding with the college basketball tournament, my class has a novel tournament each year. They brainstorm their favorite all-time novels and narrow it down to sixteen titles. Then the fun begins! They pair off and write a persuasive argument to convince their classmates to vote for their novel. Each week, half the remaining novels are voted out until a winner is crowned. Come along on our adventure this year!

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher vs. Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo vs. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
