Characters in Time Travel Fiction as Historical Guides.
Imdieke, Sandra; Anderson-Madaus, Lynn
Based on the idea that the literary genre of historical time travel fiction can provide the reader/student with a frame of reference for studying history, this paper presents a model for thematic integration of the curriculum which uses a work of literature as its central focus. According to the paper, this thematic approach to the content areas can serve as a springboard for inquiry, as a basis for writing assignments, and as a representation of the integration of the fiction with history texts, other non-fiction works, and other forms of visual media. The model described in the paper outlines classroom and research activities to augment concepts related to events in the novel "The Root Cellar" by Janet Lunn--activities in language, social studies, science, math, and art and music. The paper also contains a 22-item annotated bibliography of historical fiction time travel literature. (NKA)
