This Smart Notebook file is a brief overview of historical fiction. It is designed be an introduction to a historical fiction unit (which I may create and upload later). There are discussion questions on the slides and an exercise meant to illustrate the greater understanding of historical events that historical fiction provides. I include a document of notes that go along with the Notebook slides, and I include a handout featuring short narratives that will be used with the activity. I will also include a historical fiction reading list. While not comprehensive by any means, the list does contain a good number of popular historical fiction books. All the documents are included as attachments to the notebook.
