We will discuss the benefits of using historical fiction to teach history, using the specific examples of the Little House books (which are based on an actual historical story) and American Girl books (which are based on historical time periods but fictional characters). Workshop attendees will learn how these books can help make history come to life for their students but also how to teach about the differences between the actual history and the fiction.
