Discussion Guides

A Tale of Two Schools is an intimate story about two small communities. But it sheds light on larger issues that affect schools all across the country. We’ve put together three downloadable discussion guides to help you explore the ways in which your school can improve how it teaches reading to your community’s children. We hope you’ll make copies of these and share them with libraries, schools, teachers, and principals in your neighborhood.
