I just remembered 1 device we used in NJ that was kind of fun, & got
everyone to participate. We'd choose a certain subject matter, & then the
book agent (no she never did anything, I did it) got in touch with the
Olcott Library, who sent us a number of books on the chosen subject. i'd
tell them how many participants we were & they'd sent a few more books.
Everyone would choose 1 facet of the topic to report on on a day about a
month after the books arrived.
