Exploring Genres: Historical Fiction

Today in the Learning Commons we explored Historical Fiction with Ms. Moore’s Honors English 2 students.

Historical Fiction includes any books set in the past.  Students seem drawn to this genre especially when it comes to stories that they can relate to in their own lives.  Students realize that some of the same issues, struggles, and even solutions they face today were also present in the past.

We also took some time to evaluate how to select a book based on reading and interest level.  Students evaluated books and rated them based on how interested they would be in reading the book.  They then had the opportunity to check out a book to use with an independent reading assignment for 2nd quarter.
