For my high school English classes, this is the March Madness Elite 8 Bracket I came up with. There are a couple of ways one could go about setting this up.
I plan on sending a digital copy of each short story to my class Google Group.
If technology isn't available, one could have 5 copies of each story for the students to take turns reading and analyzing. They don't have to follow the bracket in any certain order.
Or, one could do a combination of the two methods.
