Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Incorporating quality tradebooks into the social studies instructional program can add a whole new dimension. For example, quality historical stories tend to be more interesting and sometimes easier to read than expository style texts, crowded with facts, of textbooks. Huck, Hepler, and Hickman (1987) relate that there is a direct relationship between the students responding positively to a work and their comprehension of it. As a result, students can acquire a greater understanding of an important era in their country's history through historical fiction.
