Mrs. Mitchell's 8th grade Language Arts classes will be using a Wiki to create their class projects for the third quarter novel.  Both novels are included in the Historical Fiction genre.



GT Novel 




LA8 Novel 




In historical fiction, setting is the most important literary element. Because the author is writing about a particular time in history, the information about the time period must be accurate, authentic, or both.



Recalling your previous class noveldiss, consider the setting in Killer Angels or Out of the Dust, did the historical element contribute to the authenticity of the novel as a whole?  Explain why in a historical novel, the setting must be accurate and authentic in the comment section below.  Additionally, please respond appropriately (remember your name is attached to every comment) on two of your classmate's comments.
