Historical Fiction - Student E-books

Molly Fanning's 2011-2012 seventh grade team conducted a long-range research project with the Learning Center on a period in history of the students' choosing. Students needed to research the historical event including finding primary documents to make the settings authentic. Guidance on the writing process was woven throughout the project. Many students drew from the experiences of family members as well.

Below are links to some of these stories in an e-book platform:
