This project has increased readership and awareness of great literature since 2005 by supporting teachers financially and academically to teach the selected text in the classroom. Most of the participants would not have taught the text without the support of this program. Each year an average of 40 teachers from around the state and more than 500 students have participated. This increases an awareness of literature not only in the local schools but in the community as well, inspiring book clubs for adults in the community. The project began with "Don Quixote in Wisconsin"(2005-06), while in 2014-15, students are participating in "Rousseau's Confessions in Wisconsin." Next year, students will read the 16th century Chinese novel, "Journey to the West."
