Historical fiction is one of the most interesting literary genres! This product has been recently updated, and I think it's pretty amazing.
It contains a PPT mini lesson for introducing the historical fiction genre, complete with examples using movie trailers and book trailers for historical fiction texts. It also has guided notes for the PPT and comprehension/analysis questions for examining Chapter 1 of The Help as a work of historical fiction. I also added a historical fiction assignment that encourages students to think about how our society will be viewed by historical fiction writers in the future.
This product would be great for part of a larger genre unit, as a stand-alone lesson, or as a part of a literary analysis unit, among other possibilities.
