Are your students reading a historical fiction novel? Are you struggling to look for ways to extend their thinking, or ways to further engage them with the text? Then look no further!
This PDF product contains 14 questions for your students to explore as they think about the historical novel they are reading. Each question is open ended enough to encompass a wide variety of stories, and yet targeted to cover the specific story elements and topics that are special to the genre of historical fiction.
* Describe and explain why you would or would not like to live in the time/place of your story.
* What did you learn about the location in which your book happened?
* If you had to buy your character a birthday present, what would you get them and why? (Remember to keep the time period in mind as you "shop".)
