Re: [Teacher-TalkNovel] Fact VS Fiction

From: Seay, Timothy P. <timseay@dadeschools.net>

Hi class,

 

Reviewing my notes on the student interviews from video 6 (and some of the other videos), it seems that some of the students interviewed intrepreted what they read (in fictional novels) as historical fact. I can't remember which student, but remember her making a statement that all people in the 1930's acted a certain way based upon a character portrayed in To Kill a Mockingbird. This video in particular led me to a classroom activity where students did Internet research allowing them to put a novel (fiction) they were reading in a factual, historical context.
