    Historical Fiction is a genre of writing in which real events, places, or people are incorporated into a fictional story. Historical fiction presents readers with a story that takes place during a notable period in history, and usually during a significant event in that period.  By reading historical fiction, one is given insight into actual events and/or people that make up the fabric of our history. 

    For this project, you will be exploring a historical fiction novel set during the American Revolution era.

     

    Fact ‘Flagging’ Mission: As you read your historical fiction novel, be on the look out for historical facts.  When you come across a real event, place, or person, ‘flag’ it using post-it-notes.  After each chapter or two, transfer your facts onto the chart by directly citing/quoting the passage from the novel.  REMEMBER:  ‘quote’ does not just mean dialogue.  ANY TIME you transfer words verbatim (word for word) from a piece of writing, it is considered a quote; quotation marks must be placed around it and the page number identified (see example below).
