Product Description
Historical fiction is one of the most interesting literary genres, and it's important for students to be able to distinguish between it and nonfiction. One of the ways I help students to navigate and analyze texts intelligently is by providing direct instruction about each genre.

This historical fiction lesson contains :
1. a PPT minilesson for introducing the historical fiction genre, complete with examples using movie trailers and book trailers for historical fiction texts
2. guided notes for the PPT
3. comprehension and analysis questions for examining Chapter 1 of The Help as a work of historical fiction
4. a historical fiction assignment that encourages students to think about how our society will be viewed by historical fiction writers in the future

This historical fiction lesson would work well as part of a larger genre unit, as a stand-alone lesson, or as a piece of a literary analysis unit, among other possibilities.
