Bringing Social Studies to Life through Children's Fiction.
Corbin, Denee
Social Studies Review, v31 n1 p22-25 Fall 1991
Proposes using children's historical fiction in social studies instruction. Argues that such literature is helpful because (1) children begin to learn about social phenomena through narrative; (2) historical fiction encourages students to invest emotion, take sides, and ask questions; and (3) historical fiction can counter special interest groups' influence upon textbooks. Offers examples and suggestions. (SG)
