    I think that both are important, but the first step is to get them hooked
    on reading. If a student doesn't enjoy reading, reading classic
    literature is going to probably even more "painful" to them. Once
    students gain enjoyment from reading, then challenging them with the
    classics and other higher levels of reading is a lot easier. This has
    been my experience, at least. . .
