Here  is the link to my annotations on the article Reading in the Content Areas: Fictionalized Biographies and Diaries for Social Studies written by Dee Storey. Storey explains that fictionalized biographies take the facts and mix them with emotion, feelings and decisions the character may have experienced. A part in the article talks about first person narrative and how things are only seen from that character’s perspective. This is a great teaching tool for students because many times they read about the facts but don’t have an understanding for how that person felt.
