IB History Exams
Just recently I had a student ask me for historical fiction that deals with a topic that might be on the IB History exam (ie. WWI, WWII, Cold War, etc.). Her idea was to "study" for the exams by reading historically accurate fiction books. This inspired me to put up a display with a variety of historical fiction tied in to IB History topics. It's been surprisingly popular with our 11th and 12th graders. I've heard a couple of comments that they can read fun books and indirectly study for history! I'm pretty happy when I can put up a successful book display in the library.
