Brunswick County, N.C., schools for the second year are using the popularity of March Madness-style competition to excite middle-school students about reading. The program allows students to use computers to vote on their favorite literary characters, including Katniss Everdeen, Percy Jackson, Bella Swanson and others. The project helps encourage dialogue among students about which characters are the best and also is the basis for engaging classroom lessons, reading teacher Ginny Pridgen said.
