Understanding American History through Children's Literature
Educational Leadership, Research and Technology
Students connect with Americans of the past through quality works of fiction, nonfiction, biography, folktale, and legend. American history ceases to be remote and unfamiliar and becomes the story of real individuals--colonists, pioneers, Native Americans, immigrants--with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This book is an excellent support for a literature-based history or social studies curriculum. This book closely integrates American history and children's literature by combining the best features of an annotated bibliography of children's historical literature with the best features of a teaching guide.
