Podcast Example - Historical Fiction

Historical Fiction excerpt

In this example podcast, an excerpt of Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers is presented. Historical fiction has the ability to inform, entertain, move, and capture the interest of even the most reluctant students. The number of young adult titles devoted to the Vietnam era is growing. By choosing action-packed, or poignant passages from a literary work, students may be drawn to read the book or learn more about the historical topic. If an entire class reads a core novel, a passage can be used as a motivator or a technique to encourage students to make predictions and develop a purpose for their reading.
