In this unit we are going to explore where fiction meets reality. You are each going to select one artistic creation in the disciplines of literature and evaluate it as a historical source. Utilizing your understanding of source evaluation, you will select and evaluate one piece of historical fiction (novel or play) and create a detailed analysis of its value and limitations as a historical source.
Your presentation should be approximately 15 minutes in length and include a detailed evaluation of your sources value and limitations utilizing the origin, purpose and especially the content to demonstrate its utility.
You will be evaluated on a modified paper 1 rubric and your presentation will be a summative assessment for I.B. History II.
