These student-friendly historical fiction progression maps will visually and verbally show your students how learning will typically move toward increased understanding.
After students stop and jot for their historical fiction books, they can assess themselves on the appropriate progression map for the skill in focus. Students can find where they fall and then will be able to see what they need to add to their response to demonstrate a deeper level of understanding and move across the chart.
A strong response will give students more of a solid set of talking points that they can bring back to their historical fiction book clubs, which would in turn lead to rich conversations and new discoveries among the students.
The included skills are setting, character, secondary characters, perspective, historical timeline, narrative elements, power dynamics, character change, and theme.
