Teaching History through Lit.

Posted May 3rd, 2011 at 02:33 PM by STS

Hello,
I am a Middle School History teacher and have known for a long time that the standards given are impossible to teach. I am playing with the idea of having my students read books, not the textbook and make my own lessons from the books. I am thinking novels, biographies, historical fiction. But I do not know where to begin. Anyone have ideas for me, problems you may see with this? I am positive teachers have already done this so I am not trying to re-invent the wheel I just need a starting point. I teach World History and US History.
Thanks for anything you all can do.
STS
