Included is an editable workbook to teach Historical Fiction within your class. I have paired 16 books against each other.
Each book is read, and given up to 4 stars from the students. (Terrific Title, Cool Characters, Sensational Story, Interesting Illustrations.)
They then write a short summary of what happened in each book on the lines.
Finally the students write a RACE response as to which book moves on to the next round.
