Product Description
Historical fiction is a powerful genre that can connect social studies and literacy. This resource is one I use with my historical fiction unit--one that includes literature circles/book clubs--and minilessons and activities are geared toward helping students meet the rigor of the Common Core and other rigorous state standards. There are countless ways to use it--no matter how you teach historical fiction! Minilessons are included to help you tackle this genre with short texts like picture books, but also with a more in-depth classroom book study. You can use it in a number of ways...

Consider trying...
--Whole class novels…everyone reads the same historical fiction book but you break into small groups for discussion
--Literature circles…where each group reads a different historical fiction book
--Book Clubs…where each student self-selects a historical fiction book that interests him/her
--Other…use components of this resource to accompany read alouds—even with picture books!

Included:

--Common Core Alignment Page for those needing it!
--2 page list of historical fiction minilessons!
--How I organized/structured my book clubs
--10 written “pausing points” that can be used as discussion starters—or can be used as comprehension assessments as well (in two formats--whole page and 5 per page to use in response notebooks)
--Anchor chart ideas/discussion checklists
--Bookmark that can be used to help students track their thinking!
--Graphic organizers to use with any text
--BONUS: Historical Fiction Tic Tac Toe enrichment activities
--BONUS: The letters to spell "Historical Fiction" to use to accent a bulletin board to support your unit
