    • Abstract:
      The author explores how subjectivity of narrative which is widespread in survey classes of U.S. history can be overcome by including historical fiction in the curriculum as a way to help students grasp a more accurate feel for historical events and periods. Topics include a defense of narrative fiction, science behind how certain types of fiction can make readers smarter, and books assigned such as "The Orenda" by Joseph Boyden and "Homegoing" by Yaa Gyasi.
