The Importance
of Historical Fiction
in Teaching History
Keith Pruitt, Ed.S
www.woweducationalconsulting.com
• As we look at the Common Core State
Standards, it becomes apparent that it is
meant that even in Social Studies there is
the need to use different types of text.

• Too often, history is taught as a dry set of
facts. This happened at that point…
completely separated from emotion or
reality.
History is more
• Than just the actions of
leaders. Washington led
the Revolution but our
ancestors fought it.
• Than just dates on a
calendar. September 11th
is more than just a tragic
date in American history.
• Than just boring facts to be
remembered for a test.

• History is the account of
how our families came to
be….
Historical Fiction
Allows
• Students to look at
history as human
interaction
• Present history as
POV

Jonathan Swift was an Irish clergyman, satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer and poet. Some of his most famous works include Gulliver's Travels, A Tale of a Tub, The Battle of the Books, and A Modest Proposal. He received his bachelor's degree from Trinity College in Dublin and later became the Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin. Throughout his career, Swift used satire to critique politics, science, philosophy and other aspects of society. He never married but had a close relationship with Esther Johnson, who predeceased him. Swift suffered a stroke later in life and died in 1745 at the age of 78.

This document provides an overview and analysis of J.M. Coetzee's 1986 novel Foe. It begins with background on Coetzee and his literary awards. It then summarizes the plot, characters, and themes of Foe. The novel is a postmodern reimagining of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, told from the perspective of a female castaway named Susan Barton.

In 1939, Tilman’s
daughter-in-law (Andrew’s
wife) Josie recorded
various recollections from
Tilman reflecting on his
life. This was kept in print
until recently.
As I began to do research I began to find all types of
pictures that existed of Tilman. Some of these were
given to me after the book came out.

TRAVELING TO FIND TILMAN
During the course of doing research, I’ve traveled
to Anna a couple of times, to Lick Creek, Cobden,
Jonesboro, Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi. I
began to work toward creating a story of those
years of transition when he went from a teenager
in Cannon County to coming home from the War
in 1865.
Here is a pictorial collage of the journey.
Barringer School where Tilman’s children were
educated.

Realism

Realism refers to art or literature that aims to represent subjects accurately and in detail, especially everyday life without idealization. There are three types of realism: fine arts focuses on accurate representation of forms and space; literature presents careful descriptions of ordinary life; and philosophy asserts that objects have existence independent of perception. The document then discusses several American authors - Alexander Posey, Mark Twain, and Kate Chopin - and some of their major realist works, including Twain's Huckleberry Finn and Chopin's The Awakening.

Huckleberry Finn

The document provides information about Mark Twain's novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" including a brief biography of the author, a plot summary, challenges to the book's content, and the author's reaction. It notes that the book faced bans for its use of the N-word and was seen by some as promoting racism, though the author believes it simply reflects the time period and is just name-calling that does no harm. Additional works by Twain are also listed along with sources for more information.

This document analyzes the master-slave relationship between Robinson Crusoe and Friday in Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe. It discusses how Crusoe takes on the role of master over Friday, a native islander, teaching him English, Christianity, and European culture while stripping him of his own tribal identity. The relationship mirrors the power dynamic between white European colonizers and black African slaves, with Crusoe representing the white master class and Friday representing the oppressed black slave. While Crusoe sees their relationship as father-son, the document argues it actually depicts the mentality of master and slave. The novel is said to conceptualize the entire culture of European colonialism and black subjugation.

This document provides biographical information about Jonathan Swift and summaries the major works and themes in his book "Gulliver's Travels". It notes that Swift was born in Ireland in 1667 to an English father and Irish mother. It describes the four voyages in Gulliver's Travels where Gulliver visits Lilliputians, the giants in Brobdingnag, the flying island of Laputa, and the rational horses called Houyhnhnms. Each voyage satirizes aspects of human society, politics, science, and morality through comparisons with the different peoples and cultures Gulliver encounters.

The importance of historical fiction in teaching history

  • 1. The Importance of Historical Fiction in Teaching History Keith Pruitt, Ed.S www.woweducationalconsulting.com
  • 2. • As we look at the Common Core State Standards, it becomes apparent that it is meant that even in Social Studies there is the need to use different types of text. • Too often, history is taught as a dry set of facts. This happened at that point… completely separated from emotion or reality.
  • 3. History is more • Than just the actions of leaders. Washington led the Revolution but our ancestors fought it. • Than just dates on a calendar. September 11th is more than just a tragic date in American history. • Than just boring facts to be remembered for a test. • History is the account of how our families came to be….
  • 4. Historical Fiction Allows • Students to look at history as human interaction • Present history as POV
  • 5. SHARPSHOOTER THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TILMAN MANUS
  • 8. Discovered Cairo Newspaper Article dated December 29, 1937 • Born in Cannon County in 1835 • He and uncle James had moved Wallace family on foot to Shreveport (or somewhere there about) when he was 19 • Then went to Anna, Illinois • Helped lay the railroad lines • Witnessed Lincoln/Douglas Debate • Served in Civil War as Union soldier • Became a farmer
  • 9. In 1939, Tilman’s daughter-in-law (Andrew’s wife) Josie recorded various recollections from Tilman reflecting on his life. This was kept in print until recently.
  • 10. As I began to do research I began to find all types of pictures that existed of Tilman. Some of these were given to me after the book came out.
  • 14. TRAVELING TO FIND TILMAN During the course of doing research, I’ve traveled to Anna a couple of times, to Lick Creek, Cobden, Jonesboro, Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi. I began to work toward creating a story of those years of transition when he went from a teenager in Cannon County to coming home from the War in 1865. Here is a pictorial collage of the journey.
  • 15. Barringer School where Tilman’s children were educated. Tilman’s farmhouse as it appeared in 1967. He left this house in about 1911. Tilman’s City House today
  • 18. The final resting place of Uncle James Manus in the National Cemetery in Natchez, Miss.
  • 20. A Reading From the Book
  • 21. How Can I Build This In The Classroom? 1. Look for ways to incorporate the reading of good historical fiction into the classroom. 2. Have students look at historical topics through other POVs. 3. Incorporate RESEARCH and Writing of historical fiction in the classroom. http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/650.Bes t_Children_s_Historical_Fiction
