Vermont Literature and Historical Fiction for Elementary Students.
Woodruff, Mary E.
An annotated bibliography of literary works appropriate for elementary students and instructional materials for use with the literature are contained in this teacher sourcebook. Materials can be divided into two categories, historical fiction and works by Vermont authors, and may be used for a thematic approach to literature or for a study of Vermont history and culture. Three introductory sections contain the rationale and organization of the sourcebook, the rationale for using historical fiction at the elementary level, and a list of student activities for studying historical fiction. The remainder of the publication consists of bibliographic and instructional information on 20 fictional works, the majority of which were published between 1974 and 1981. For each entry, a review sheet lists publisher, genre, Fry readability, setting, number of pages, story summary, major themes, and evaluative comments. A student worksheet and suggestions for student activities are also provided. A bibliography of Vermont literature concludes the sourcebook. (LP)
