Historical Fiction: Asian Pacific American Heritage (Grades 7-12)
The genre of historical fiction offers a dramatic study of history at an emotional level. It makes the past come to life and engages students as they begin to connect events with individuals. The commonplace details and little known facts of history that permeate historical fiction will not only surprise and engage readers, but inspire questions and critical thinking.
Our Asian Pacific American Heritage historical fiction list features stories about young people coming of age against historical backdrops, including the Han Dynasty, the Mongul Empire, Colonial India, and China's Cultural Revolution.
