During the unit, students will read historical fiction and non-fiction to explore historical accounts from multiple voices and perspectives. They will discover that critical readers recognize that a single text presents just one portrayal of a topic or event and one writer’s perspective of the subject matter. This unit will challenge students to continually make text-to-text connections as they read selections of historical fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Combining their background knowledge with the texts in this unit, students will critically examine the historical accounts of the same events from diverging viewpoints. * Students will read the historical fiction novel, Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson, in conjunction with the poetry of Phillis Wheatley to explore the era and events of the American Revolution from the perspective of the African Slave.
